Students can now sign up for the Thompson Rivers University (TRU) Residential Carpentry Construction program in Williams Lake.
It’s the only school in B.C. that offers foundation and levels 1 and 2 apprenticeship training over seven-and-a-half months, without any breaks, so students start working at a higher level as soon as they’re done.
Intake only occurs once a year, in July. While demand for carpenters is high right now, demand for skilled carpenters with the proper training is even higher.
This year’s students will work on a landmark project in partnership with the city: building a display structure for an antique fire truck at the old fire station in the heart of downtown Williams Lake.
Spaces are still available, with a limit of 16 students. Anyone interested should contact 250-392-8000 or firstname.lastname@example.org to apply as soon as possible.
