NASRCC Carpentry Apprenticeship Program


Careers in Carpentry

The North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters (NASRCC) and the North Atlantic States Carpenters Training Fund (NASCTF) offer many opportunities to explore, as it relates to training for a career in carpentry and advancing skills to become a professional union carpenter. Whether you are a high school, college student or adult, you can learn about how to gain practical knowledge and skills with income and benefits potential through NASRCC. This is a great time to consider a career in the skilled trades and NASRCC can provide the opportunity.

Each month, there is an information session held at the Carpenters Local 279 training facility: 52 Stone Castle Road in Rock Tavern, NY. These information sessions provide details about the organization and how to join the apprenticeship program. The information session is the first Monday of each month and begins promptly at 6pm. No registration is needed to attend. If you have little to no experience in construction and may still be interested, please feel free to inquire about the pre-apprenticeship programs that are available.

Last year NASRCC launched a new resource page where you will find more information about the types of training the Carpenters union provides, opportunities to advance education, pre-apprenticeship programs and additional partnerships.

Specifically for schools and other educational programs, you will find information regarding the:

  • Carpenters Career Connections curriculum offered to high schools and organizations.
  • “Workshop Days” where students get a full-day, hands-on look at training facilities and/or sign up for a tour of our training facility.
