The ICTC continues to follow the Governor’s Wolf’s mandate for school closures. According to the last update, all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed indefinitely as a response to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts. ICTC has posted it’s Continuity of Education Plan in an effort to inform students and parents about our current plan of instruction.
The ICTC will continue to monitor this situation closely. We are working with sending school Districts, the ARIN IU28, post-secondary institutions and industry certification providers to assist us in offering meaningful educational opportunities to keep our students engaged in the educational process.
Opportunity for success in the carpentry field is driven by knowledge and ability, enhanced by focused education and training. Students possessing creativity, independence, motivation, pride and enthusiasm for learning may want to explore carpentry as their career.
Students receive instruction in all phases of residential carpentry beginning with design and layout and working through the final stages of interior and exterior finishing and trim installations. Students gain the entry-level foundation skills to enter either immediate employment or post-secondary training allowing them to choose from a variety of other carpentry-related fields. Carpentry-related theory and skills are taught using a competency-based instructional framework requiring students to demonstrate their ability to safely perform specific job-related tasks in order to prepare for the carpentry job market.
Rapid advancement in technology impacts carpentry through improved tools, equipment and materials available. Carpentry students will become proficient in the use of the many new techniques, tools and equipment available in today’s technological society. Field trips, on-site project experiences and repeated training in primary skill areas will prepare students for the career of a lifetime.
The students may attain an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) ten hour training course in “Construction Safety & Health” as well as a training course on a Bobcat VersaHandler Telescopic Fork Lift.
