                                      Industry Changes

The government has recently set targets for greater energy efficiency to combat climate change. With further training, you may be able to install and maintain renewable energy technologies like solar powered heating systems.

Over the next ten years, the employment outlook is considered to be excellent. The lack of trained and qualified carpenters and the expected increased retirement rate in these trades over the next decade highlight the opportunities within the industry for good potential jobs.

Employment of carpenters is expected to increase. Turnover in this field is high, so many openings occur each year. Demand should also be high for those who stay informed about new developments in this field.
