Apprenticeship - Carpenter
Apprenticeship is a structured training program leading to certification in the skilled trades. An apprenticeship combines supervised on-the-job training and experience with theoretical technical training. You find a job in your trade first and then enter into an apprenticeship agreement. You work 7,200 hours mentored by a certified journeyperson and gain the required skills and knowledge. You also take some technical courses. The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency administers the trades training and certification system. A carpenter apprenticeship prepares apprentices to lay out, cut, fabricate, erect, install, and repair wooden structures and fixtures, using hand and power tools.
