A nationally certified two year program, Residential Carpentry uses the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum. The program is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of home construction, as well as the proper use of the hand-tools and power tools that are used in the trade. Projects range from small utility buildings to complete houses. The carpentry program has strong ties with the Maine Contractors and Builders Alliance (MCBA), which has helped with the goal of building one house each year. This project allows students to participate in almost every aspect of home construction and offers a great opportunity for students that are interested in construction to experience working outdoors in Maine weather.
