Training – South Florida

Welcome to the South Florida Carpenters Training Center, based in Ft. Lauderdale, where we provide apprenticeship training and skill-enhancement training for our experienced journeymen.

We specialize in skills needed in the healthcare construction, as well as a host of other building sectors. We are also the home of an exclusive, real-time healthcare facility mockup to simulate renovation work in an occupied healthcare facility. The realism of the environment allows us to refine our skills in actual working conditions. The program is offered only to UBC training centers, such as ours.

Training is the hallmark of the Florida Regional Council of Carpenters. Through training, we open doors for our contractors by supplying them with the best carpenters in the state. Through attitude and the desire for excellence, we keep that door open.
