Online Companion: Residential Construction Academy - Carpentry

Residential Construction Academy Series

Home Builder Institute (HBI), the workforce development arm of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and publisher Thomson Delmar Learning, a part of the Thomson Corporation, have teamed up with construction professionals and educators to develop a set of national standards for five separate craft trades: Carpentry, Electrical Wiring, HVAC, Plumbing, and Facilities Maintenance. From these set of standards, Thomson Delmar Learning has set out to create a set of learning tools - textbooks, videos, and instructor's curriculum, Construction Academy Series.
