Carpentry

The emphasis of this Carpentry program is house construction. Within our curriculum, we include other technological and peripheral areas of renewable wood technologies and related industries. The off-campus instruction aspect of the program is an extension of the main area of training that takes place in the school shop.

The four-year program is divided into five parts: Exploratory, Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors and is matched to today’s industry standards. The post graduate program is an accelerated two-year program, in which the students are in theory and the shop every day.
