NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) Hosts 48th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit

NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) Hosts 48th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit

April 13, 2017

On Wednesday, April 12th, the NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) hosted its 48th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit. The event, which is highly anticipated each year, once again served to not only showcase the skills apprentices have learned during their last four years at the CTC, but it also provided spirited competition, a platform for industry trends, and a demonstration for state-of-the-art tools as well.

Although there are a great deal of activities which take place at this event each year, center stage always belongs to the 4th Year Graduating Apprentice exhibit. As has been tradition since its inception, dozens of apprentices took part in a friendly, but highly competitive event that challenged them to complete projects in their various trades. Carpenters, Floor Coverers, Interior Finishers, Millwrights, Timberman, Dockbuilders, and Cabinetmakers all had opportunities to display the various skills they learned and sharpened during their time at the CTC.

The end results of the varying projects were aesthetically pleasing, as the exhibit outwardly displayed the outstanding craftsmanship of the graduating class.
