Program Entry: Fall, Spring, Summer
The Carpentry program offers education and practical experience in basic residential carpentry. Students will receive competency-based instruction in the use of up-to-date carpentry production equipment such as saws, jointers, sanders and routers. Practical experience is provided through construction of a residence each year by the carpentry students. As the carpentry trade is one of the most basic trades in society, employment opportunities for carpenters may be found in communities of all sizes.
The Northeast Iowa Community College Carpentry program is recognized by the Master Builders of Iowa through the National Center for Construction Education and Research.
