Carpentry has one of the broadest bases of all the trades because carpenters are typically the first to arrive on the job site and the last to leave. Carpenters are the builders of society who create homes for people to live in and buildings for people to work in. Job satisfaction tends to be very high in this field and the strong base of job opportunities will continue to improve into the future. Apprenticeship is a great way to develop employable skills while working and earning a paycheck. In fact, apprentices are required to find a job before they go to school. On the job, you’ll typically work under the direction of a journeyman who provides instruction as you gain experience. Your college study periods are short, usually about two months long, allowing you to build theoretical knowledge and more advanced practical skills. Apprenticeship programs require you to attend college once a year for three or four years including a minimum of 1560 hours of on-the-job training and eight weeks of technical training each year. Carpenters construct, erect and repair buildings and other structures. Our program will teach you all aspects of construction from foundation to finishing through classroom theory and practice in the shop. We will show you how to set up formwork, prepare to pour, build wall and roof frames, construct stairs and build finished projects such as furniture. You will also learn core skills such as reading blueprints; planning your sequence of work; cutting and shaping materials; and checking completed units to ensure they are level and square, and the right size, shape and location. Our class sizes allow us to spend a great deal of individual time with apprentices both in the classroom and in the shop. You can take all four years of your carpenter education at Medicine Hat College. Relevant Skills and Abilities The work is most rewarding for those who take pride in creating a variety of things with their hands and honing their expertise in woodcraft. To be successful in the trade, carpenters need the ability to stand, crouch and kneel for long periods manual dexterity balance for working on scaffolding the ability to use proper lifting techniques the ability to solve arithmetic problems quickly and accurately the ability to get along well with others on a work team How to Apply The first step to becoming an apprentice is finding a job in the trade you would like to study. This is like any other job search, except you are looking for an employer who is willing to hire you as an apprentice in a trade. Once you have found employment, you can complete the Apprenticeship Application and Contract. This will allow you to be accepted as an apprentice tradesperson. Access the form at www.tradesecrets.alberta.ca. After your application has been accepted, you will begin training with your employer and are now eligible to register for training at Medicine Hat College. You will then be sent an information package from the college on how to proceed with your registration (dates, times and location of first day of class). Working Conditions Carpenters may work alone, in teams, or with helpers. Working conditions vary from one job to another. On some jobs carpenters work primarily indoors, are permanently employed and work a regular 40-hour week. On other jobs, they work primarily outdoors, are subject to seasonal unemployment, and routinely work overtime in peak periods. There is some risk of injury from slips and falls, falling objects, and sharp hand and power tools. [-]

Are you a leader who is interested in environmental conservation and wants a program which encompasses a range of outdoor activities and interests? The Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership (ETOL) program can help you apply your interests in a number of exciting, rewarding career options. Our Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership (ETOL) program is based on the principles of experiential education, where students learn by doing. We provide a broad range of courses for a comprehensive education while applying the theory learned in class through field experiences. Our curriculum weaves natural resource themes throughout to create an understanding of current theory and practice of ecotourism and outdoor leadership. We expose you to a variety of aspects of the industry including geography, natural resources education, environmental interpretation, ecotourism issues and technical outdoor skills. Many of the courses provide opportunities to practice outdoor skills and apply theory in both practical and professional settings — sometimes completing projects for real clients in the industry. You will find many of the lab sessions and field trips are held outdoors in nearby natural areas such as Cypress Hills Inter-Provincial Park, various locations in the Rockies, as well as destinations further abroad. Because of the highly experiential nature of this program, you will be expected to participate on average, approximately three field trips per semester. The length and location of the trips will vary each year. With the ETOL program, you have the option of pursuing a two-year diploma or a three-year applied degree ending in a field placement. Our faculty are leaders in their field and are a part of ongoing professional development and research. They believe in working closely with students, providing the personalized and professional guidance not every post-secondary institution can offer. Continuation Requirements Academic standards and continuation requirements are consistent with general College policies. In addition, you must demonstrate a professional approach, an adequate level of fitness, and satisfactory work habits. You may be asked to withdraw should you fail to meet these program standards. Furthermore, any action that places colleagues and students in jeopardy at any time on any off campus trip may lead to being denied further participation on future trips. As a consequence, you would be unable to successfully meet either the requirements of a particular course or core requirements of the program. Graduation Requirements You must complete all programs requirements with an overall cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or better A minimum C- grade is required in all ETOL courses in order to continue. No more than one D or D+ grade is permitted in each year of the program. You are allowed only two D or D+ grades in all non-ETOL courses in the Diploma program.
