Blinn’s first ever two-week carpentry course recognized graduates Friday for successfully completing the first ever carpentry course with a Certificate of Completion and an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) certificate.
The new, hand’s on course was held at the AgriLife Extension facilities at The Texas A&M University System’s RELLIS Campus in Bryan, and was designed for students with no prior experience in construction.
“The accomplishments of the Carpentry Boot Camp’s first graduating class is a great indicator that this partnership between Blinn, TEEX, and the Agrilife Extension is thriving,” said Ron Peddy, Division Director of TEEX’s Infrastructure Training and Safety Institute.
The course covered job-site safety, the safe operation and use of basic residential construction tools, the basic elements of residential framing, reading residential architectural drawings, and basic building code requirements.
