The program has been suspended for the 2012-2013 year for budgetary reasons.

Each year the Carpentry program builds a residential home with the support of the WWCC Foundation. This hands-on training allows students to participate in the "foundation-to-finish" experiences necessary to build a new home while completing the required carpentry coursework and related instruction for the AAAS Degree. Students will graduate from the Carpentry program with the knowledge and experience necessary to begin employment in the construction industry. Carpentry curriculum is reviewed by an advisory board composed of local and regional industry members.
