Carpentry Apprenticeship

NORTH 
Certificate (339)

This four-year certificate program offers qualifying applicants occupational training under the sponsorship of the local Joint Apprenticeship Committee.   

The cooperative part of the program involves lecture and laboratory classes for thirty (30) academic credits. A student may then apply these credits toward an associate's degree in Building Construction Estimating or Supervision.

Graduates will have had classroom and shop training and job experience in carpentry. Upon completion of the Certificate and the job experience hours required by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, they may work in commercial building construction as a skilled carpenter.   

Construction trade technology training programs are open to all qualifying students. These programs are offered in conjunction with the Joint Apprenticeship Committees of the building trades and the Pennsylvania Department of Labor. The State of Pennsylvania awards Journeyman working papers to those who complete one of these apprenticeship programs.  Admission is by competitive testing and interviews with a Joint Apprenticeship Committee.
