Vermont Registered Carpentry Apprenticeship Program

Our Registered Carpentry Apprenticeship will help to address a critical workforce shortage in Vermont by connecting employers with individuals interested in learning a trade.

Apprentices will receive 3,000 hours (18 months) of on-the-job training from an employer registered with the program and 310 hours of related instruction through ReSOURCE VT. All training and related instruction is fully developed using ABC National Guidelines for Apprenticeship and the National Center for Construction Education & Research curriculum.

For more information, contact Bryan Kent, 802-881-9117.
