Training Centers & course info

What is a Carpenter?

Carpenters saw, level, hammer, and measure wood and other building material. They install tile, insulation, acoustical ceilings, cabinets, siding, and much more. Carpenters work with a variety of tools and materials to build houses, construct bridges or highways, and erect skyscrapers. Carpentry is one of the oldest trades in the country.

 

What is a Millwright?

Millwrights install conveyor systems, turbines, and electrical generators. They maintain factory machinery and perform precision installation and maintenance work in nuclear power stations. Millwrights are highly skilled and can study and interpret blueprints and perform drilling, welding, or bolting necessary to bring the plans to fruition.

 

What is a Floor Layer?

Floor Layers install carpet, vinyl, laminate, and turf. Floor coverings serve important basic function in buildings, but their decorative qualities contribute to the buildings appeal. From simple carpet installations to complicated inlay, floor layers enhance aesthetics and safety of any building.
