Carpenters make up the largest trade group in the construction industry and work under a wide variety of conditions, using many different hand and power tools. They work with wood, concrete, metals, plastics, and other construction materials.
Carpenters do framing with steel and wood, and also build stairs and frame roofs. They also install wood paneling, cabinets, windows, doors, and door hardware.
Carpenters can be involved in the many different phases of a building project or choose to specialize in areas such as framing, drywall, acoustic ceilings, concrete form building, hardware, and millwork.
Many graduates of the Carpentry Diploma program continue their training by entering a formal apprentice program.
