Carpenters Apprentices Learn Diverse Skills at Training Center

RICHFIELD, Ohio — The Northeast Ohio Carpenters’ Training Center, which has more than 58,000 square feet of indoor training and 28,000 outdoors, is one of four in Ohio.

Apprentices come to school one week at a time four times every 12 months during their four-year learning sessions. The rest of the time, they’re working for their contractors, receiving job-specific training.

The training classes are no different than a 40-hour work week. In addition, apprentices need 5,200 work hours out in the field.
