Overview - 2019/2020
If you love building and crafting, why not use your passion and begin a career as a carpenter? If you're interested in working with your hands in a supportive environment that will teach you the skills you need to succeed, then consider signing up for the General Carpenter Apprenticeship at Fanshawe.
You'll measure, shape, cut and construct forms for concrete pouring, create foundations, floors, walls and ceilings and build stairs, counters and cupboards. In other words, you'll be involved in every step of the project as you help to create a safe space that people can work, play, or live in. To be a great carpenter, you'll need manual dexterity, strong organization skills and the ability to visualize how pieces come together. We know these skills aren't developed overnight, and that's why you'll be able to develop them under the direction of experienced workers during an apprentice period of the program. If you're ready to work and want to get planning, measuring, and crafting, this apprenticeship will provide you with the combination of short-class instruction and hands-on training that will help you build a career as a carpenter.
