Carpentry Program

RCTC’s Carpentry program is designed to prepare students for careers as carpenters in residential and commercial construction, factories, cabinet shops, and building maintenance fields.

The primary activity of the RCTC program is the building of a house. This house building experience includes building layout, foundations, rough framing, roofing, insulation, installing drywall, and interior trim. About two-thirds of the instruction is on the project site constructing a new home.
