Carpentry Apprenticeship Program

Quality construction starts with quality people. That’s why Nabholz offers a Carpentry Apprenticeship program led by some of the most knowledgeable and experienced carpenters in our region. This four-year program is open to anyone interested in the carpentry profession. We currently offer classes in Conway and Little Rock, Arkansas.

A team of experienced Nabholz construction professionals will serve as your instructors, combining their years of experience with a solid curriculum from the National Center for Construction Education & Research. Classes meet one evening a week and run for nine months each year–from late August through early May. The entire program takes four years to complete. Instruction isn’t limited to just the classroom–your instructors will guide you through real-world, hands-on project experiences. When you graduate you will receive a diploma from the US Department of Labor and Nabholz University.
The only cost of the Apprenticeship program is the cost of your textbook. This varies from year to year, with the most recent costing $85. The cost for current Nabholz employees is $50.
Call Cindy Troillet at 501.505.5832 for more information and to apply.

Though many Nabholz employees participate in this program, this is not a job or job offer and you will not be compensated for participation in the program. Completing this program does not guarantee a job offer from Nabholz. To register as a certified carpenter with the US Department of Labor Apprenticeship Office, participants must also be currently employed in construction, receiving concurrent on-the-job training and registered classroom studies (i.e. the Nabholz University Carpentry Apprenticeship program).
