Carpenter (Pre-Employment)

In the Carpenter (Pre-Employment) Program, students will complete courses outlined in the Provincial Plan of Training for the Carpenter Apprenticeship. During this entry-level program, students will learn the essential skills of the trade and will be prepared, upon graduation, to enter the workforce as a first-year apprentice.

Once graduates earn employment as a Carpenter Apprentice, they are encouraged to contact the Division of Apprenticeship and Trades Certification of the Department of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour to become a “Registered Apprentice.” Under the supervision of a Certified Journeyperson, the hours and competencies the apprentice earns will be then credited toward the qualifications required to become eligible to challenge the Interprovincial Exam.
