Description:This program provides theoretical knowledge of the Carpenter Trade and practical skills to complement apprentices' on-the-job training. Apprenticeship is an agreement between an individual who wants to learn a skill and an employer who needs a skilled worker. It is a combination of in-school training and on-the-job experience. An apprenticeship can last 2-5 years, depending on the program. As an apprentice, about 90% of your time is spent learning practical skills on the job, while supervised by a qualified journeyperson. The rest is spent learning theoretical and technical aspects of your trade. Over time, the apprenticeship system of training has proven to be one of the world's most successful ways to learn.
