Free carpenter pre-apprenticeship training offered at UH Maui College
University of Hawaiʻi Maui College is offering a new, free eight-week carpentry pre-apprenticeship training program this summer for residents interested in pursuing career pathways in the skilled trades as carpenters, drywallers and millwrights starting June 13, 2022.
The successful completion of this intensive, hands-on course serves as a direct pathway to becoming a registered apprentice with the Hawaiʻi Carpenters Apprenticeship Program.
Training starts with carpentry fundamentals and basic tool use, construction math, basic blueprint reading, applied carpentry skills, and culminates with a two-week paid internship at an active construction site.
Tuition sponsorships for unemployed and underemployed Maui residents will be sponsored by Hana Career Pathways, a statewide program offering short-term trainings that lead to industry credentials and registered apprenticeship programs.
Students will also be offered paid internship and employment opportunities.
Recent high school graduates are invited to apply.
Classes are held on campus June 13-July 22, Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Required internship placements will be scheduled for August 1-12.
