The purpose of the second year of the Carpentry program is to reinforce the theories and practical applications covered in Carpentry I. Safety will be reviewed extensively as the student will complete the OSHA 10 training modules. The course will require approximately 40% classroom instruction and 60% application of necessary skills in a shop environment. These percentages are subject to change based on time and mastery by the students in certain applications.
The second portion of the Carpentry program is designed as prerequisite course for continued education in the construction field or to obtain entry level skills for employment as a carpenter. The student needs to be proficient in math, preferably having completed geometry, and be proficient in reading and locating information. Practicing safety will be of the utmost importance in evaluating the student’s progress. Communication and collaboration with the instructor and classmates are two aspects that will be taken into consideration as each student works toward developing a successful work ethic.
