What is a licensed carpenter?

A licensed carpenter is someone who has earned a college diploma in Carpentry, has completed 7200 apprenticeship hours of on-the-job training under another licensed carpenter and has successfully passed a Ministry exam.

There are three phases of academic training that must be completed (General, Intermediate and Advanced levels). The General phase focuses primarily on basic carpentry skills, handheld and stationary tools. The Intermediate phase focuses on residential construction ie: framing, doors, stairs and rafter layout. The Advanced phase focuses on commercial construction with an emphasis on concrete and steel. Following this criteria, an exam is written under the Ministry of Training, with the expectation of 70% for a passing grade to achieve a red seal certified carpenter status. A license is then issued. This license is recognized throughout Canada.

Justin completed his training and became a licensed carpenter in 2009.

A bit about Justin...

I graduated from the Loyalist College Corrections program in 2000 and after five years in the field working with Young Offenders I decided to take a leap of faith and switch careers. I felt a restlessness and desired to explore other career paths. A friend encouraged me to work alongside him to get a feel for carpentry work, and this is when I fell in love with building. A passion was sparked and I then began my journey of entering the trade of carpentry.

Everything started anew! I went through the apprenticeship program, completed over 7200 hours on the job training under the watchful eye of a licensed carpenter, completed all three mandatory phases at St. Lawrence College, and then wrote my four–hour carpentry exam. Once I received my license Trinity Custom Carpentry was born May 15th, 2009.

I have had the pleasure of growing my business over the past years with a foundation that has been built upon hard work and integrity. I have also been blessed by the support of my wife and two young daughters as Trinity Custom Carpentry continues to develop.
