Benefits of carpenter training programs

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), carpenters work in a variety of environments. They help build bridges, construct residential and commercial property, erect government facilities, and more. As the population grows and aging infrastructure needs to be replaced, the job opportunities for carpenters should keep pace.

Students can complete short-term carpenter training programs and be eligible to start working as soon as they’re finished. When you request information from schools in your area, be sure to ask which employers they work with to help graduates find carpenter-related jobs.

Carpenter salary expectations

The BLS reports the median salary for carpenters in 2021 was $48,260. What you earn will depend on the type of job you acquire and where you live. When you reach out to schools, salary expectations should be a topic you discuss as well.
