As part of the DOL National Apprenticeship Week, the Carpenter Training Center in Elk Grove Village held its 7th Annual Apprenticeship Open House on November 17, 2021. This year’s virtual event was geared towards educating those still in high school, and the veterans that have served our country, about the trades.

This presentation explains what a Union is and why it’s beneficial to be part of the Carpenters Union. The various crafts that fall under the Carpentry title are described and then what it takes to become a Professional Carpenter. Explanations on how to get into the various Carpentry Apprenticeship training programs and questions are taken from the audience.
