Earn a Degree
Getting a college degree isn’t necessary to have a long and successful career as a professional carpenter, but earning one will help you broaden your knowledge and develop a deeper understanding of our craft’s value in society. You’ll also get to interact with people outside our industry who will provide you with new perspectives based on their experiences.
Contractors value skilled workers but they also want workers who show a desire to learn, and holding a college degree goes a long way toward proving your commitment to seeing a job through to the end.
Planning For the Road Ahead
College credit earned from completion of your apprenticeship program will support your transition into a supervisory or management role within our crafts.
