The Woodworkers Training Program is a vocational training program that prepares participants for a wide range of skilled occupations in the wood products and solid surface manufacturing industry. Since 1993, the program has graduated 846 trainees. Through GWTP placement services graduates have gone into full time, training-related, non-subsidized employment. 

Created as a Community-Business Partnership, the program simultaneously meets the needs of community residents while developing a skilled workforce for the local woodworking industry.
