NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) Hosts 50th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit

NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) Hosts 50th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit

April 26, 2019

On Wednesday, April 24th, the NYCDCC Training Center (“CTC”) hosted its 50th Annual 4th Year Graduating Apprentice Open House/Exhibit. The highly anticipated annual event once again served not only to 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.

Although there are many activities that take place during this event each year, center stage always belongs to the 4th Year Graduating Apprentice exhibit. As has been tradition since the event’s inception, dozens of apprentices took part in a friendly, but competitive event that challenged them to complete projects in their various trades. Carpenters, Floor Coverers, Interior Finishers, Millwrights, Timberman, Dockbuilders, and Cabinet Makers 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 fantastic, as the event displayed the outstanding craftsmanship of the graduating class.
