Carpentry students are introduced to the use of hand and power tools, residential framing, commercial metal stud construction, roofing, cabinet making, drywall installation and interior and exterior finishing. When possible, the program leads the construction of an actual project house on the Greene County Career Center campus.
Student work has also been displayed at the Greene County Fair and recognized by Habitat for Humanity. The Carpentry program is nationally-recognized by NCCER and you are able to earn credit at both Sinclair Community College and Hocking College in a variety of construction pathways.
Advanced placement is available to seniors who meet certain grade, attendance, and behavior requirements. It allows you to enter the workforce during the senior year. With the proper grades, attendance and teacher recommendation, you may also be eligible for the Apprenticeship program during the senior year. Our placement program can help with both opportunities once you have proven yourself at GCCC.
