In this program, you’ll learn how to construct and renovate residential and commercial buildings. You’ll use hand tools and machines, and learn the different practices of current and emerging industry standards. You’ll experience the importance of working together safely and efficiently on building sites to meet your clients’ needs.

Our Carpentry facilities are well-suited for lectures, benchwork, and small building projects. In addition, you’ll work off-site on construction that may include house additions, garages, or similar projects.

The aim of the Carpentry program is to train individuals to work in residential construction or renovation. Graduates are prepared to perform all basic tasks of the carpentry trade, both rough and finish, to meet code requirements and the expectations of clients. Graduates understand how to read blueprints accurately, estimate materials, and construct a basic single-family house.

In addition to the Full-Time program, we offer a number of woodworking and carpentry courses through our Continuing Education Department. View all CE courses here.

NBSS felt right because they taught you how to build a house from start to finish... you get a big picture perspective. You know what's supposed to happen before and after. Everybody should learn this way.
