INSPIRE ACADEMY OFFERS BASIC RESIDENTIAL CARPENTRY PROGRAM
Inspire Academy, formerly the Chambers County Career Technical Center, will be offering a free eight-week course this fall for adults needing basic knowledge and shills in the residential carpentry field.
“This program is specifically designed for people seeking a career in the residential housing construction industry,” said course instructor Seth Stehouwer. “Each class meeting will include classroom instruction and hands-on training in our shop.”
The new program is being provided through a partnership between the Chambers County Board of Education and the Alabama Home Builders Foundation. Among skills featured in the course are basic construction site layout, reading blueprints, floor and wall framing, roof and ceiling framing, window and door installation, stairs, interior trim and finishes.
“Students completing the course requirements will receive NCCER credits, as well as a certificate of completion from the Alabama Home Builders Foundation,” said Stehouwer. “There is a limit of twelve students per class, but we must have a minimum of ten participants.”
Classes begin on Monday, September 28, 2020, and run through November 23, meeting on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5:30 until 7:30 p.m. Central Time. Pre-registration forms are available at Inspire Academy, 502 Vocational Drive in LaFayette. For more information, contact Seth Stehouwer at [email protected]
