Carpentry is a program that prepares young men and women to apply technical knowledge and skills to lay-out, fabricate, erect, install, and repair wooden structures and fixtures using hand and power tools as they prepare for a career in residential construction. In addition, the program will prepare individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to set-up and operate industrial woodworking machinery and to use such machinery to design and fabricate wooden components and complete articles. Throughout the program, students will be exposed to various job situations where problem solving and decision-making will be tested and evaluated. Accuracy and precision will be required. Students will be instructed in state and local building codes as well as current changes in laws.
