Carpentry Apprenticeship Program


 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

A full time job while you learn!

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

Not only is tuition covered, but the students are also placed with a business in town that is looking to hire once the student is finished with the two year training. Official link to the program

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). Upon completion of the apprenticeship program, students will receive a Department of Labor apprenticeship certificate. It is expected that those individuals completing the program will continue employment with the sponsoring 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.

The program receives financial support from the Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation and the South Dakota Department of Labor.
