Carpenter

Carpenters build and repair a vast array of structures made of wood, wood-substitutes and other materials. Carpenters assemble and erect forms for concrete, wood and metal frame construction and use plans and instruments to prepare for excavating and shoring. On smaller projects, they direct concrete placement, and install exterior and interior finish materials such as siding, doors, windows and cabinets. It is a physically demanding occupation requiring the lifting of heavy tools and materials. As Carpentry is primarily a work-based training trade, mentoring of apprentices and workers is a necessary skill for Journeyperson Carpenters.

Carpentry is a nationally designated trade under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program.

Recommendations

Education recommendation: Grade 10 (Grade 12 preferred); English 10 or English-language proficiency; Math 10; Science 10.

 

The Apprenticeship Program is comprised of Levels 1-to-4 of progressive technical training, with each Level taking 7 weeks (210 hours) to complete.  In addition, apprentices are required to accumulate 6,480 hours of work-based training.

 

The Foundation Program - which may have stricter entrance requirements - can jump-start your career without employer sponsorship by supplying the knowledge and skills to enter directly at Level 2 (refer to Industry Training Authority for alternative paths into the occupation).
