Caleb James's insight:

1.) The requirements to become a carpenter is just some schooling or apprenticeship.  It may help you if join some organizations so when applying companies can see that you are a good worker.  Once you finish one the teaching options you will be able to go for your associates degree.

 

2.) Some qualifications to get in to an apprenticeship program are you have to be a holder of a highschool diploma or a GED and must be 17.  You will have an interview face to face with the person that might be hiring you.  You will have to hold a valid drivers liscence and be a legal residence of the United States.  So pretty much this will be a normal job application.

 

3.) You may think that you would need certifications but the truth is that you don't though this may help you in the long run.  This would help you in the long run because you might be the only guy on the job that is certified to guide the crane operater where to place the material off the truck.  Also having certifications let people see what you can do like green construction where you use enviromental friendly material.  This would be a great investment to your learning career.

 

4.) To become a carpenter it can take up to a few years just like any career.  If you already have some college experience that can be helpful as you can transfer them and make your carpentry career start quicker.  After all this you are finally able to become a journey man.

 

5.) Schooling for carpentry may be more inexpensive for most because for most of the time you are getting paid to learn.  So with that said it will cost very little.  It also depends on the schools you go to if you pick top notch expensive schools or just go to community can make a big differnece.

 

6.) What can expect to learn from these programs is workplace saftey which is very important inthis line of work.  This career is very math based so youn can bet you will learn a lot on math.  You may have to learn some computer based material.  An important thing will be the laws and regulations on building that you will learn but these change all the time so you will have to keep learning the new ways.

 

7.) The outlook for a carpentry job is very high up there when it comes to it.  People are always going to need buildings in there lif and are going to need people who know how.  They have predicted that 196,000 job openings will be available by 2020.
