About the program:  HBASE is partnering with Southeast Tech to offer a 2-year Carpentry Apprenticeship Program as a way to improve the availability of skilled, entry-level workers in the building industry. The program gives people over 18 years of age the chance to start a new career.

The apprenticeship coursework consists of 4,000 hours and a 2-year commitment for full-time employment from both the students and their employers. Students will work full-time for a contractor located in the Sioux Falls region in addition to completing classroom work one night a week (mid-August through May). The apprentice would work for the employer on a trial basis during the summer prior to enrolling in the apprenticeship program to ensure a fit with the apprentice and the employer. 

Topics covered during the program: Safety and OSHA Training, Hand and Power Tools, Wood and Wood Products, Blueprint Reading/ International Residential Code, Concrete Form Construction, Floor Framing, Wall and Ceiling Framing, Scaffolding/Ladders and Sawhorses, Roof Framing, Doors and Windows, Roofing, Siding and Decking, Insulation and Wall Finish, Interior Finish, Stair Framing and Finish Carpentry and Cabinets and Countertops.

Cost to employers: $999/year
Program start date: August 23, 2018
