Carpentry and Masonry - Certificate

The Instructional Program

The certificates in carpentry and masonry are two-semester sequences of courses within the A.O.S. degree program in Carpentry and Building Trades that begins in the fall each year. There are two advisement options: one focuses on carpentry, the other on masonry.  A certificate is good for those students who may not be able to attend college for longer than two semesters.

To obtain these certificates, students must first apply to and be accepted into the Carpentry and Building Trades A.O.S. degree program, then notify their academic advisor of their desire to work toward a certificate.

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