The Carpentry & Cabinetmaking Technology program prepares students as entry-level trades people in the layout, estimation, and construction of residential construction including the installation of trim, furniture, stairs, and cabinets. The skill set would also include weatherization installers and technicians and conservation retrofitters. Leadership and management skills are stressed. Students work with industry standard tools and equipment such as table saws, jointers, power tools, hand tools, pneumatic nailers, and laser levels.
Graduates work as rough and finish carpenters, cabinetmakers, mill workers, building product representatives, and custom woodworkers.
Typical employers in the carpentry and cabinetmaking career field are residential, commercial, and industrial construction companies; remodeling contractors; cabinet and showcase manufacturers; mill-work companies and lumber yards; wholesale and retail building product suppliers; modular home manufacturers; large institutional, business, and industrial complexes; and architectural engineering firms.
In addition to tuition and fees, Carpentry students will have an additional fee of $650 to cover the cost of supplies and materials used in the hands-on learning process.
It is not required to tell the instructor if you are pregnant but it is highly recommended because of the lifting and other requirements of the program that may jeopardize the health of the mother and fetus.
