Carpentry students begin with entry-level carpentry projects to learn basic tool techniques and concepts. Key skills needed to be successful in construction include measurement, cutting, fastening, and power tool use. Grade 10 students practice carpentry fundamentals preparing them to participate in a housebuilding program as juniors and seniors. These skills translate into essential workplace proficiency.
