In the Carpentry program, students construct a house from the basement to the roof. This program concentrates on craftsmanship in framing, floors, trim, cabinetry, and finish work. First year students are involved in building sheds, garages and second year students build a house. Students learn teamwork and participate in budgeting, purchasing, and estimating to prepare for careers in contracting. This experience has direct links to the local union apprenticeship program, DMACC and other training programs after graduating from high school.

Students have an opportunity to earn a ten-hour OSHA card for general construction, certify in Lead Safe Work Practices, Powder Actuated Tools and learn to drive a skid loader.
