About The Program
The Career Foundation’s General Carpenter Pre-Apprenticeship program is delivered in partnership with Mohawk College and the Carpenter’s Union Local 18. It is geared towards individuals between the ages of 18 and 29 who have an interest in pursing a career in carpentry/construction.
There is no cost to participate!
The program runs for approximately 30 weeks (18 weeks in-class and a 12-week paid job placement). Participants receive General Carpenter Level 1 Apprenticeship training at the Stoney Creek Campus of Mohawk College, along with secondary trade exposure in Drywall, Acoustics and Lathing Application from the Carpenter’s Local 18 in Stoney Creek. In addition, pre-employment and job maintenance training will be provided to assist participants to develop skills for securing and retaining sustainable employment.
Additionally, participants are provided with the following: health and safety training; industry certifications; PPE (personal protective equipment); and a basic tool kit. Upon completion of the in-class training, participants complete a paid work placement, where students will continue their learning in the field. The majority of training and work placements will take place in Hamilton; however, work placements can be made available province-wide.
