Current Class Schedule

Building the Future

The Carpentry program gives students hands-on experience in the construction of a home. Students are involved in all phases of the project, from planning to drafting to foundation, framing, and finishing work. Instructors experienced in general contracting and teaching conduct all classroom and building experiences. While the primary emphasis is residential construction, certain processes found in commercial construction are also covered. Students can expect to learn basic math skills, proper use of hand and power tools, blueprint reading, and basic wall layouts. They will also demonstrate concrete, framing, roofing, siding, and drywall skills by building a house.

*The Residential Construction program is only offered at the Duchesne County Jail Instructional Service Center and is not open to the public

Graduates will be prepared to seek employment with building contractors, construction material suppliers, and architectural or civil engineering firms. Possible positions include carpenter, carpenter’s helper, subcontractor, project foreman, and estimator, among others.
