The intent of this program is to provide skills and knowledge necessary for initial entry into the Carpentry trade. The program is delivered in two components: site layout, footings & foundations and wood frame construction. There is an emphasis on current best practices for environmental sustainability.

Graduates of the Carpentry Foundation program obtain training consistent with provincial standards for those occupational cores and specialties completed but will not acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become fully qualified. Credit for completing this program may be applied to apprenticeships affiliated with these specialties.

The object of the program is to prepare the student for a career in the construction industry by developing skills equivalent to that of a first year apprentice. In order to attain this objective, the program includes a large amount of hands-on practical experience. As much as possible, the practical projects will be done on site, either at the college or in co-operation with local industry.

The students will be exposed to the same conditions as one would expect to encounter on the job and must be prepared to work outdoors regardless of weather. It is also possible there will be times when students may have to work longer than normal college hours depending on the project.
