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.

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