This course was designed to help students learn the basics of carpentry while building real projects and gaining job-ready skills. The best way to learn something is to take what you’ve learned and put it into practice right away. In these projects we walk you through step by step, teaching while go. One of the awesome things about learning carpentry online is that you can go at your own pace and review sections anytime without any extra pressure.
Even if you are looking to go into another trade, the lessons you learn in carpentry are widely used in the other trades and have immense value. Many of the trades are interconnected and the skills learned in one are often very valuable when working in any another trade.
"Consider the reality of today’s job market. We have a massive skills gap. Even with record unemployment, millions of skilled jobs are unfilled because no one is trained or willing to do them. Meanwhile unemployment among college graduates is at an all-time high, and the majority of those graduates with jobs are not even working in their field of study. Plus, they owe a trillion dollars in student loans. A trillion! And still, we push a four-year college degree as the best way for the most people to find a successful career?" —Mike Rowe
