At the Open House they get to show off the unique and exciting aspects of the Carpentry Foundation program where students gain lots of practical experience during the construction of a house.
The Residential Carpentry program was recently renamed to Carpentry Foundation (Enhanced) Levels 1 & 2.
Level 1 of the program provides students with theoretical and practical instruction through a variety of projects including stairs, forms for concrete, framed floors, walls, and roofs. Students spend approximately 70 per cent of their time in practical skill development.
Level 2 of the program builds on the skills learned in Level 1, while introducing students to finishing work and rigging/hoisting.
