Carpentry - Apprenticeship Level 2 Contact page

If you have your Level 1 Carpentry, you can get your Level 2 Carpentry without leaving home! 

Apprentices work as apprentice carpenters and come to Vancouver Island University for 7 weeks for technical training. Approximately 80% of the training is done on-the-job and 20% is in-school technical training. To become certified, an apprentice must complete on-the-job experience, successfully pass all in-school technical training, and pass the Standard Level Exam (SLE) and the Inter-Provincial Examination with a 70% or greater.

Please be aware that Level 2 is a condensed intensive program with homework assignments.  Classes will run 6 hours per day with a ½ hour lunch break, 4 days per week, Tuesday-Friday. 

It is highly recommended that students coordinate with their employer to arrange time off from work for this program.
