The Carpentry program provides students with job-ready skills for entrance into the residential construction industry.

Classes meet each day in indoor or outdoor labs specifically designed for residential construction projects. During the first semester, safety rules, wood identification, technical terminology, proper use of tools, carpentry mathematics, blueprint reading, and residential framing fundamentals are taught.

The second semester covers exterior finish, interior finish, drywall, stair building, carpentry mathematics, blueprint reading, and some cabinet making. Each semester students will be required to use skills and techniques learned in the classroom in field projects related to residential construction. These projects will vary each semester based on availability.
