The Apprenticeship Carpenter program is designed to train apprentices to construct, erect and repair buildings and other structures made of wood, wood substitutes, steel, and other materials. Due to the nature of the work of the carpenter, it is imperative that safety be taught on a continuous basis throughout this program.
This program outline is based on the NWT/Alberta Carpenter Apprenticeship Course Outline (2007) issued by the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).
The goal of apprenticeship training is to develop competent journeypersons through a combination of on-the-job and technical training.
The Apprenticeship Carpenter Program at Aurora College provides all four levels of technical training.
