National Center for Construction Education & Research
General Carpentry, Sixth Edition is available now! General Carpentry, Sixth Edition represents a shift in the way that NCCER presents its Carpentry program. The Carpentry program will be changing from a four-level structure to two distinct career paths. After taking the introductory level, General Carpentry, trainees can choose to pursue a path of advanced building construction or concrete formwork. By completing both the construction and formwork training paths, NCCER's sixth edition of Carpentry can be used to satisfy a four-year registered apprenticeship.
Carpenters make up the largest building trades occupation in the industry and those with all-around skills are in high demand.
Carpenters are involved in many different kinds of construction activities, from building highways and bridges to installing kitchen cabinets. Carpenters construct, erect, install, and repair structures and fixtures made from wood and other materials.
