The Carpentry Techniques program takes students from building layout, through the completion of framing for a residential construction project. Students will gain the required knowledge with respect to blueprint reading, building code, construction methods, building materials, tools and jobsite safety in an interactive classroom environment. Students will then apply their skills in a variety of hands-on carpentry courses. In addition to new construction, students will apply their experiences to a variety of renovation projects. The program provides training in the skills required for an on-site general carpenter and construction worker, including the safe operation and maintenance of hand, portable, and stationary power tools. Students learn the layout and construction of a residential build from footings through roof framing. Emphasis is placed on developing and practicing the hands-on skills needed in the field. Graduates from this program can take the techniques they learned to the workforce or they can apply to enter the second year of the Carpentry and Renovations Technician program. This program is offered at more than one campus for your convenience. Learn more about the programs and services of Fanshawe’s campuses in London (London Campus) and Huron/Bruce.
