Apprenticeship and Training


Taking Pride in Our Work and Our Members
Quality. Reliability. Professionalism. The Northwest Carpenters have a reputation of excellence. Our regional trusts invest in training for new generations of workers into becoming professionally trained workers and future leaders in the construction industry.

Apprenticeship program
Apprenticeship is a great way to start a career as a carpenter. Membership procedures and requirements vary from area to area. Please contact the training center nearest you for more information.
Members of the Pacific Northwest Regional Council of Carpenters are entitled to training through Training Centers located Council-wide. Training is supervised by a Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee with members from the Union and the signatory employer. For more information about joining the Union and getting paid to learn, please contact Kathy Swan.
