This nine-month program prepares students for apprenticeship positions in the cabinet makers (joiners) trade or for careers as fine furniture builders.
Students engage in a variety of classroom and shop activities. They learn theoretical principles, concepts, and theories of furniture and cabinet design in the classroom. They apply their knowledge in the shop where they engage in the construction of cabinets and fine furniture.
Graduates of the Fine Woodworking Program at Selkirk College earn credit for Level 1 and Level 2 of the cabinet maker (joiner) trade technical training component of their apprenticeships. Additionally, graduates receive 475 hours advance credit towards the on-the-job component of an apprenticeship.
