Everest's Carpentry program has been designed to acquaint you with the theory, craft, art, science and skills necessary to be a professional carpenter. Upon completion of your studies, you should be qualified to compete for entry-level jobs as a carpenter's assistant or apprentice.*
Learning from skilled artisans in a modern workshop setting, you will explore the colorful history of carpentry through the ages, and then progress to reading blueprints, understanding structural framing with wood and metal, stair construction, and window, door, cabinets and countertop installations.
Most of your education will actually be hands-on by working with the kinds of hand tools and power tools you'd actually use in the field.

- Basic Construction Core

- Reading Plans and Site Layout
- Framing Floors and Walls
- Framing Roofs and Roof Coverings

Upon completing your training, you'll be qualified for apprentice carpenter positions with builders and contractors throughout your area. Everest's Career Services staff can help connect you with employers who understand and value the training Everest’s program delivers.*
