The O.P. and W.T. Crowder Construction Institute located at the Harper Campus offers four levels of carpentry instruction as continuing education. No transcripts or assessments are required to enroll, but students do advance in a progressive sequence.
Hands-on courses with expert instructors are designed for construction apprentices, current craft workers and those interested in the skills and knowledge for basic construction (Carpentry Level 1), as well as floor, wall, ceiling and roof framing (Carpentry Level 2), advanced carpentry techniques (Carpentry Level 3) and beyond (Carpentry Level 4).
