Timber Framers Guild Apprenticeship Program

The Timber Framers Guild, a 501-C3 educational association, is pleased to announce the recent registration and implementation of a U.S. Department of Labor certified Apprenticeship Program. The Apprenticeship program is the result of capital investment funded by the general membership, staff time, and many volunteer hours over more than five years. This program expresses the will of the membership and the mission statement of the Timber Framers Guild.

Timber framing is a multi-discipline carpentry trade and its many aspects will be taught as part of the Guild apprenticeship program.  One segment of this broad based education that will be received by current and future apprentices covers both the living timber framed architectural heritage, and necessary preservation methodologies.  As preservation challenges emerge, the Guild is preparing a corps of trained and experienced timber frame preservation professionals.

The Guild has among its membership many preservation specialists, representing niche disciplines: mills, steeples, covered bridges, and the study, documentation and restoration of our many regional house and barn typologies. These people have willingly shared their knowledge and unique skill sets with others in the membership and some have authored monographs published by the Guild.

Many of these same people have contributed to the Guild's curricula, and will continue to refine this foundation of our apprenticeship program, for use in the continued training of coming generations of timber framers.

The Guild does seek project based educational opportunities for Journeyworkers, Apprentices, Members, and the Public as a means to deliver professional training in a workplace setting.

For more information on the Apprenticeship Program visit www.TFGuild.org or contact the Timber Framers Guild at: info@tfguild.org, PO Box 295, 9 Mechanic St Alstead, NH 03602-0295.
