Become A Carpenter At Everest - Houston Bissonnet

Everest Institute's Carpentry program prepares you for basic building construction and carpentry techniques including framing walls, floors, roofs, stairs  and much more.

There are certain skills needed to begin a career as a carpenter. As new technologies are introduced in the construction industry, it remains necessary and critical to find skilled carpentry technicians who understand the core fundamentals of carpentry principles, which include blueprint reading, structural framing with wood and metal, stair construction, and window, door, cabinet and countertop installation.

It is forecast that demand for qualified carpenters may increase by 18 percent through 2020.* These opportunities may be pursued by those with the right industry-specific training. Personal attitude, experience and market conditions are just a few of the variables that can have an effect on employment opportunities.

  • Basic Construction Principles
  • Introduction to Carpentry, Building Material and Tools

Beginning with learning basic math skills, measurement and other core industrial skills, the curriculum can provide students with the industry fundamentals needed to successfully practice the carpenter trade.

It means a lot, too, when you can train under professionals who hone and keep their skills sharp by working directly in the industry they teach. The training professionals and instructors at Everest know what it takes for a student to succeed in today’s world.

Training in carpentry is not just centered on the physical aspects of the trade either. Trainees are encouraged to keep an open mind along with an attitude that promotes good judgment at all times.

Asking questions from those in the know can be highly informative with respect to the tools needed and the rules and regulations that apply to a specific job. On-the-job training can also teach entry-level carpenters to get into the habit of thinking ahead.
