Tools: It is highly recommended for students to have/own the following tools to begin the program:
25 ft. tape measure, box cutter, 20 oz. hammer, 11 in 1 screwdriver, drywall saw, Carpenter's square, scraper, pliers and a cordless drill.

However, due to previous experience, we do not accept students that currently work overnight jobs.
