By Staff | Oct 10, 2019

In July, more than 70 students on Oahu completed the carpentry program. Nearly all graduates have secured employment.

HONOLULU – The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement (CNHA) is expanding its carpentry program to Maui and Molokai.

“The goal of the program is to raise income for Native Hawaiian families by providing participants with the skills, tools and mentorships they need to become successful in the trade industry,” said Kuhio Lewis, CNHA chief executive officer.

Classes in the Hawaiian Trades Academy-Carpentry Program are scheduled to begin in November. Enrollment is now open for Maui and Molokai until the end of October.

This program will prepare the next generation of carpenters with hands-on skills to succeed in a profession that averages $35 per hour.

Receive your OSHA-10 Certification, learn carpentry skills, receive Apprentice Test preparation, get help with job placement and participate in the Matching Savings Program.
