Career Connections

Looking to expand your carpentry knowledge? Look no further than our Career Connections!

While some schools already have great Industrial Technology programs, others are looking to update their programs or even install new ones into their schools. The United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America offers curriculum for students in grades 9-12 that can work in conjunction with any of these scenarios.

The Career Connections program not only teaches important hands-on skills for all students, but it also gives those students who aren’t college-bound another avenue for success after graduation. The Career Connections program has six different books available, as well as the option to custom build a book to fit a school’s individual needs.

The books include One Trade Many Careers, Math for the Trades, Project Book 1, Project Book 2, Project Book 3 Residential Construction and Project Book 3 Commercial Construction. The books are very well organized and designed for modern learning styles, come with great teaching tools and materials, and includes CDs with videos and test creating software.

Equally important is that the use of Career Connections comes with the potential for articulation agreements, meaning students can earn credits toward our apprenticeship program while still in high school. After completing each book, students receive a certificate of completion showing the credit they’ve earned. This gives them a great head start in practical knowledge and income potential upon graduation from your school.
