Carpenter Apprenticeship : Emily Griffith Technical College

Carpenter Apprenticeship

Do you like working with your hands and building things? If you are interested in working in construction, an apprenticeship in carpentry may be right for you. 

What is a Carpenter? Carpenters construct, install, build and repair structures and fixtures made from wood and other materials. They are essential in commercial and residential construction, as well as infrastructure construction like highways and bridges. 

In an apprenticeship program like carpentry, you’ll gain experience through on-the-job training and coursework provided by apprenticeship partners. You’ll learn to build forms for concrete, frame buildings, read blueprints, and handle power tools. Carpentry apprenticeship programs typically last four years.

High-demand career: Construction is a growing industry in the Denver metro area. 

Requirements: If you are interested in the Carpenter apprenticeship, you must be 18 years and possess a valid social security number.

EMILY’S STORIES


"It has been my desire to succeed in life and I believe that having a good education is the foundation of good success."

Lillian is a graduate of our HSE program. Lillian is originally from Nigeria and came to Denver in 2016. She came to Emily Griffith to continue her education. The GED program was her starting point and her goal was to then continue to CNA and then LPN and from there additional training in nursing if she has the chance.

Lillian says her husband encouraged her and helped explain concepts. Laura Blom gave her textbooks to practice reading, Martha in the SSC was really helpful as well. Lilian used the SSC to get help with math questions and Martha would help her out, and Laura was always there and she approached her on breaks to ask questions. The encouragement she received was really important to staying positive and ultimately achieving her goal.

Lillian passed her GED and she is now preparing to apply to the CNA program! “It has been my desire to succeed in life and I believe that having a good education is the foundation of good success,” says Lillian. “I would like to thank Laura, and Emily Griffith for showing me the way and for providing me the opportunity to achieve one of my goals.”

Congratulations Lillian!
