The Residential Carpentry Certificate includes courses that are designed to provide students with the skills necessary to be employable in construction-related fields. Students completing this program will have tangible hands on experience as well as a solid knowledge base of how the construction work flow progresses through the stages of a particular job.
Some courses are not eligible for Financial Aid. Please check the list here when considering a course.
In addition to the general carpentry courses, students may take additional coursework including construction management, computer aided drafting, commercial construction theory, cost estimating, construction equipment, methods and general contractor preparation to earn an Associate Degree from Construction Technology.
Many of the courses in this program are transferable and some may be applied to four-year degree programs at other institutions. CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.
Career and technical education courses in this program will qualify for credit for a period of ten academic years. Due to changing technologies, trends, and professional demands, courses completed ten or more years in the past will satisfy program requirements only if they are approved by the instructional school in which they were offered. Cohorted programs may have additional restrictions.
