The Blinn College District Carpentry Program offers a variety of awards designed to prepare students for entry-level carpentry positions, including college credit degree plans that place students on the pathway to higher-wage management positions in the industry. All Blinn carpentry courses follow the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum, a nationally recognized curriculum developed with the cooperation of more than 125 construction CEOs, trade association officials, and academic leaders.
At Blinn, carpentry students can earn their NCCER Core Construction and Carpentry Level 1-4 certifications and Blinn’s Occupational Skills Award and Level 1 and 2 certificates in carpentry.
Students study at the Agriculture and Workforce Education Complex located at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan. This 38,000-square-foot facility opened in June 2020 and is a collaborative partnership between the Texas A&M University System; the Texas A&M University Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communications; and the Blinn College District. The complex also includes a trades lab, where students will experience the hands-on application of skills discussed in the classroom.
