As the name implies there are two programs here at the Texas Carpenters and Millwrights Houston Training Center. Our Carpentry program trains both commercial and industrial carpenters. Carpenters work in commercial building, concrete forms, interior system, trade shows, scaffolding and the likes. A good candidate would be someone who likes to construct things and is good with their hands. Millwrights are industrial mechanics and work in a verity of settings. Along the Gulf coast most Millwrights work in the petro chemical industry or in power plants. A good candidate would be someone who likes or would like to work on cars, motorcycle, anything mechanical. Our carpenters belong to a four state council that covers Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas Central South Carpenters Regional Council). Our Millwrights belong to a council that consist of eleven states from Texas to Florida up to the Carolina’s back through Oklahoma (Southern States Regional Millwrights Council).
Our program is a true apprentice program in that our apprentice are required to work and come to school. Carpenters must come to school 160 hours a year and Millwrights must come 200 hours a year. On top of school hours they must work a minimum of 1300 hours under the supervision of journeymen. While our school would be very expensive compared to what’s out in the market place, all of our apprentice training is paid for by the contractor, meaning the apprentice do not pay for their classes. Apprentice receive pay increases as they move through the system and after 4 years should complete as a Journeymen Carpenter or Millwright.
