DISCOVER OUR TRADES

The EASCTC trains members of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC) who represent one trade with many crafts. We equip our professional craftsmen with skills that are demanded in today’s construction industry.

Crafting the Future of Construction

Our members touch every aspect of a construction project; they’re frequently first on the job and the last to leave. Carpenters make up the largest single group of skilled workers in the country. They create commercial, residential, and institutional structures through the skill and experience that is established only by union training. To be a carpenter is to be a member of one of the oldest and most respected trades in the world, and our varied work today stems from the many products that once were made entirely of wood. Our members have vastly different skill sets, but they share the pride and commitment to excellence that comes with being part of the Brotherhood.
