College Catalog Fall 2006 - Spring 2007
Carpentry and Masonry - Certificate

The Instructional Program

This is a two-semester sequence of courses that starts in the fall each year. There are two options under this certificate program: one focuses on Carpentry, the other on Masonry. 

The courses in this certificate program are also in the Carpentry associate's degree programs. The certificate is good for those students who may not be able to attend college for longer than two semesters. Most students enroll directly in the Carpentry and Building Trades associate's degree program. 

For information on career opportunities in this field, see the Carpentry and Building Trades program description.
