CIP Code: 46.0201

Instructor: Mr. Groff

In the carpentry program, craftsmanship is emphasized. Students will learn basic fundamentals of residential construction. These fundamentals include: hand tools, portable power tools, stationary power equipment, blueprint reading, concrete form construction, floor, wall, and roof framing, interior and exterior finish, cabinets and countertops, and stair building. Students will also have the opportunity to program and use our computer numerically controlled router. During their senior year, students will build a culminating project of their choosing, so they may showcase the skills learned throughout the carpentry program. Upon graduation, students are prepared to enter the workplace or to further their education. Former students have attended Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology, Penn College of Technology, and HACC.
