This one-year certificate program trains students to perform a wide variety of carpentry tasks. Level one concentrates on hand and power tools skills, the uses of wood and related materials, and construction safety. Level two features the application of these skills to residential construction including both framing and finishing.
Students build sawhorses, toolboxes and cabinets; frame floors, walls and roofs; and apply interior and exterior trim. Trade-related courses give students skills in mathematics, geometry, drafting, blueprint reading, estimating and communication.
Successful completion of this program will give graduates advanced standing in Heritage Carpentry and Millwork. Graduates may also be eligible for exemption from some in-school carpentry apprenticeship training. Some course credits may also be transferable to related college programs such as Furniture Technician or Masonry Techniques.
