Ohio Carpenters’ Joint Apprenticeship & Training Program



We Train Tomorrow's Carpenters and Millwrights

The Ohio Carpenters’ Joint Apprenticeship and Training Program offers one of the top carpenter apprenticeship programs in the nation. Our graduates are always regarded as being the most skilled and productive members on a jobsite by their employers. As a result, they are routinely assigned to the challenging jobsites, earn a great hourly wage and fringe benefits, and are respected as the true professionals that they are.

The programs are updated regularly to stay up to date with the lastest tools and technologies, and evolving with the needs of our employers and the end customer. From hands-on or classroom learning in our training centers, to one-on-one mentoring on a jobsite, our men and women receive training that is in-demand at jobsites throughout Ohio.

Our training is based on a $200 million program developed by the United Brotherhood of Carpenters International Training Fund. With this support, our members obtain highly-developed skills, supply productive and safe work, and display the right attitude to emerge as jobsite leaders.
