Our one-year program is a full-time commitment, including classroom & hands-on shop training.
Part-time wages are earned from the start, increasing to full-time wages by the end of the year. Apprentices not only learn to build wood products but also develop their resume while learning the trade.
Professionals from the St. Louis Metropolitan area contribute to instruction, coaching & study, offering apprentices a broad range of perspective.
Instructors work alongside apprentices to ensure the high quality of excellence our customers expect while providing hands-on learning experiences that cannot be obtained in a classroom.
This Biblical program addresses the whole person. Classes include:
- Life Skills Coaching
- Personal Financial Management
- Critical Thinking
- Bible Study
Upon completion of the first year, apprentices may choose to continue the 8000-hour apprenticeship, earning a Journeyman certificate from the Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship.
