O que eu aprenderei?

As the backbone of vibrant communities, your work as a carpenter will be in high demand, giving your career high earning and growth potential. With this trade, you’ll enjoy the flexibility of being an independent contractor or the security of working for larger organizations.

Students engage in a variety of classroom and shop activities. Theoretical principles of construction are learned in the classroom, while the majority of the time is spent in the shop where students learn and gain mastery of practical carpentry skills. Early activities include the fabrication of small projects where students learn safe practices, proper tool use and fundamental construction techniques. Gradually, students build structures of increased complexity that simulate real-world construction scenarios. Students learn to lay out buildings and to construct concrete formwork, floors, walls, roofs, and stairs in compliance with BC Building Code standards.
