It’s quiet these days around the Southern Alaska Carpenter Training Center in South Anchorage.
To the center’s training coordinator, Aaron Combs, that’s a good thing. It means his students are working.
Just a few weeks ago, in early June, the Southern Alaska Carpenter Training Center yard was full of lumber and about 40 students building frames for concrete walls, the consummation of their first year of training.
Combs said the initial six weeks of training attempt to touch on the basics of everything the apprentice-level students could encounter on a job site.
