Florida Carpentry Apprenticeship

How would you like to Earn Wages While You Learn a Trade?

   Carpentry is a skilled trade in which the primary work performed is the cutting, shaping, and installation of building materials during the construction of residential homes, commercial buildings, ships, timber bridges, and concrete form-work. Carpenters traditionally worked with natural wood and did much of the rougher work such as framing, fabrication, and forming. Today, carpentry also includes working with many other material-types (metal framing, composites, etc.) and will sometimes focus on finer, more-detailed projects, such as cabinetmaking and furniture building.
