With this trade, you’ll enjoy the flexibility of being an independent contractor or the security of working for larger organizations. Selkirk College is endorsed by the BC Industry Training Authority to deliver all four levels of Carpentry Apprenticeship Technical Training to registered carpentry apprentices.

Each level of training consists of a full-time (30 hours per week), seven-week, on-campus program of study. Activities include classroom sessions where as an apprentice you will learn theoretical principles of carpentry, and shop sessions where knowledge is put to use in the mastery of practical skills.
