A typical day of training would be classwork for four hours and then shop for another four. We learned carpenters math and the right procedures for the job. It wasn't hard, and i enjoy it because it gives me the opportunity to put my mark upon this earth.

Great mix of classroom and shop training in the Pre Apprentice program and hands on training out in the field once you pass the 9 week coarse. All in all it was a great learning experience for me even if I couldn't read a tape at the time.

Very physical and hands on a lot of heavy lifting and some book work. We did a routine everyday material handling and different small workouts. They give you a lot of practice.

This free training has proven to be very beneficial in allowing people to ultimately earn a good living wage. It gives you 9 weeks of basic training before you are allowed to to go out as an apprentice and obtain work. A typical day of training includes class time, Hands-On training out in the shop on any number of basic skills, as well as Material Handling and exercise. The training culture is supportive and motivating. The toughest part of the training is not grasping a skill as quickly as you may like and possibly the material handling for some. Material Handling is a form of conditioning and preparation where you physically carry various job site materials (i.e. studs, scaffolding boards, metal concrete forms) multiple times around the school's parking lot or shop area. The most enjoyable part of the training has to be learning many different new skills that you know will eventually allow you to build and create some spectacular structures. The requirements are as follows: -You must be 17 years of age -You must have a valid driver's license or state ID card -You must reside in one of the following counties: Cook,DuPage, Grundy, Iroquois, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, or Will - You must have an officially sealed High School transcript or GED -You must have an original social security card/receipt showing duplicate card has been applied for -You must pass a proficiency test, be physically fit to work as a carpenter, pass a drug test, and submit a $25 non-refundable application processing fee at the time of filling an application (money orders only) no cash

A typical day of training was from 8 am to 4 pm. It is a serious environment for training, but the staff are still on a common level with students aside from the curriculum. The teachers are thorough in their teaching due to their experience.
