The General Construction Carpentry Techniques program allows students to develop many of the skills needed to build a new home or structure or to renovate an old one. Students learn to produce sketches, work from blueprints, develop building details, and assess construction sites. They are taught carpentry skills from base footings to framing, interior and exterior finishing, and fine finishing techniques. The program also focuses on energy-efficient and green/sustainable construction practices and methods. Building and installation techniques are practiced through hands-on construction activities and projects and students hone their skills on a major construction or renovation project in their final semester of study.
