Students receive training according to the provincial Apprenticeship curriculum, as established by the Industry Training Authority of British Columbia, pertinent to the Apprenticeship level in which the student is enrolled. Upon successful completion of all four levels and appropriate time in the trade, the student may be eligible to write the Inter-Provincial exam as a Carpenter.
