Free carpentry training to be available for adult learners

Sullivan County’s Center for Workforce Development and Sullivan BOCES have partnered to provide up to 15 local residents with free basic carpentry training starting this April. The training is for adult learners, age 18 or older, who live in Sullivan County.

This nine-week program is administered by the CWD, part of the Division of Community Resources. Classes start April 10 and will be held every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Rubin Pollack Education Center on Ferndale-Loomis Road in Liberty.

Each week the BOCES instructor will focus on a different aspect of the construction trades: tools, safety, materials, framing, flooring, ceilings, decks, stairs, building inspections and more.

In the final week, the CWD will teach participants how to build a great resumé and find jobs.

Anyone interested should contact the CWD immediately, as only 15 spots are available for this course.
