Online Construction & Carpentry Degrees

Construction and Carpentry Programs
Construction programs will train you to read blueprints and lay out a building with a series of measurements and marks. Assuming the project passes local building codes, construction begins with a framework of planks and drywall, which are joined, reinforced and finished. Many carpenters and construction workers take on small projects like bathroom remodels, window replacement and decks or patios. Construction workers typically work outdoors and complete manual tasks, while managers oversee projects and carpenters do specialized, delicate work like molding, furniture and finials.

Training in Construction and Carpentry
Most carpenters attend training programs of 3 or 4 years, including classroom instruction and job training. Construction training most often happens on the job site, with trainees handling basic tasks and building up to more advanced skills, but some training is available at community colleges, including Spanish classes. Construction managers should have a bachelors degree in construction science or management, as well as industry experience. Many colleges and universities offer degrees in construction and engineering management.

Careers in Construction and Carpentry
Construction managers oversee carpenters and construction workers on projects such as the building of homes, freeways, real estate developments and bridges. Each project is separate and can range from updating a bathroom in a single-family home to building a major freeway or a shopping mall. Construction managers can make high salaries with a degree program at the level of bachelor or associate degrees, in the range of $40,000 to well over $100,000.
