to train you to be a professional carpenter with the skills, productivity, and attitude that are in demand, right now, in your area. An apprenticeship takes about four years, with time spent on an actual jobsite and at the training center. You’ll be working and learning while getting paid, with benefits!
You Become a Journeyman Carpenter
We keep tabs on our alumni and offer an incredible list of refresher and extended learning courses (called Journeyman Skill Updates) to keep you on top of your game and in demand.
The traits that lured you toward this career are the same characteristics that catch the eye of employers when they need someone to take charge of a project. When you get noticed for a promotion, we offer foreman and superintendent career training to help you move up the ladder.
Here’s another perk: Being a union carpenter means being part of the largest and oldest trade union in the country. It’s an elite group that has your back, because The United Brotherhood of Carpenters protects its own. And if you get involved in your local union’s activities and have a good head on your shoulders, you have the chance to be a leader, travel to the UBC’s Las Vegas training center for special training, and earn the respect of your co-workers and the contractor you work for.
Central South Carpenters have the reputation of doing what it takes to provide the skills, productivity, and “can-do” attitude to get the job done. If you are reliable and willing to learn—you will succeed at this career and fit right into our ranks.
