The Carpenters' Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (CJATC) oversees the operation of the Carpenter's Training Center at Ridge Road (Pittsburgh), Scranton, Lebanon and Altoona. Apprentice and Journeyman training are the keys to the quality of the work produced by our members. The Apprenticeship Program offers a four-year program in the area of carpentry--commercial, residential and heavy construction. Additionally, separate programs exist for floor laying, cabinet making, and mill working. You can also become a pile driver or a millwright. In the program, safety and professional skills are emphasized. To be accepted in the program, interested applicants must pass certain testing requirements. Please look for more information on the training program in the near future.
