Carpentry

Carpentry introduces students to many different construction projects. In the Vantage Carpentry program, students learn skills related to residential construction including blueprint reading, computerized house design, framing, roofing, and dry walling all by building a house themselves. Carpenters must be able to measure and cut out materials using hand and power tools. Carpentry work is sometimes strenuous. They should enjoy working both indoors and outdoors. 

Students will learn to:
  • Work in all aspects of construction including framing, roofing, cabinetmaking, and finish carpentry
  • Generate blueprints and 3D computer drawings using advanced architectural software
  • Work on various construction projects throughout the community
  • Apply knowledge and skills to build custom cabinets using computer-aided design software and a CNC router
