The Carpentry program allows students to participate in the “foundation-to-finish” experiences necessary to build a basic residential house while completing the required carpentry coursework. Students will graduate from the Carpentry program with the knowledge and experience necessary to begin employment at the entry level in the construction industry, or enter a four-year apprenticeship program. Credit may be given in the apprenticeship program for work completed at Hawai‘i Community College.

UHCC applies an open access policy, with program admission based upon the completion of applicable course/testing prerequisites. The lack of English skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in CTE programs.
Students in the Carpentry program build a custom home each year for a Native Hawaiian family as part of the "Model Home Project." The homes are also designed, wired and landscaped by Hawai'i CC students in other construction trades programs.
After a work injury ended my construction career, I knew getting a college education was essential for moving forward with my life. I'm so grateful Hawai'i Community College – Pālamanui was here when I needed it most.

I think what I appreciated most about Hawai‘i Community College was the friendly atmosphere and how willing the faculty and staff were to help you to achieve your goals.
Attending Hawai'i Community College was the most important and best step I have ever taken to better my future. My experience at Hawai‘i CC was by far one of the best experiences of my life. Hawai‘i CC was very accommodating to my schedule, and it is definitely nice to have a college that was affordable and nearby.
