Pre-Apprentice Carpentry (PAC)

Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who work in the construction industry fabricating primarily wood constructions; from the entire framework of a building to ornate woodwork on stairs and trim. Some carpenters pre-fabricate cabinets and other structures in shops or factories while others work on construction sites, cutting, joining, and installing structural elements. Many specialize in one aspect of construction. Carpenters working as independent contractors, however, have the ability to work on a wide range of projects.
