Vocational
Carpentry

Are you genuinely gifted when it comes to working with wood? If so, you probably already have some experience in fashioning this material.

Courses in carpentry tend to be either a form of the traditional apprenticeship where you learn 'on the job', or programs offered by vocational schools or colleges. The latter will teach you not just about carpentry but also the basics of construction management. Whichever option you choose, you will learn about making joints, the safe and proper use of power tools, the way in which wood is graded and classified, and finishing techniques. You will also learn how to quickly and accurately interpret construction drawings, and the rudiments of First Aid.

The requirement for carpenters is directly proportional to the amount of construction activity which in turn is the precursor of an economic recovery. Therefore when the tide of the recession turns, carpenters will be in high demand almost immediately. Many carpenters work for specialist subcontractors while others are self-employed taking on ancillary activities like dry walling or insulating properties between more conventional carpentry jobs.
