The Associate of Science degree and Certificate of Achievement in Apprenticeship Carpentry Tilt-up are designed to provide related and supplemental instruction including the technical skills and knowledge required in the trade. Tilt-up apprentices work with slabs of concrete which, after attaining proper strength, are lifted (tilted) with a crane and set on prepared foundations to form the exterior walls of a building. The erected panels are temporarily braced, connected, and the joints between them caulked. Tilt-up workers may construct and attach the roof structure to the walls to complete the building shell. Tilt-up construction is used for nearly every type of one- to four-story building. Successful completion may result in journey worker status. Interested apprentices should contact the Carpentry Apprenticeship Committee and the Apprenticeship Office at Santiago Canyon College.
