The third Canadian Edition of Vogt/Nauth's Carpentry is the market-leading Carpentry text in Canada, designed for community college students enrolled in Apprenticeship and Diploma programs. Developed in line with the 2015 National Building Code of Canada, Carpentry provides students with both the theory and industry knowledge required to apprentice and go on to work in the carpentry trade. The core of the carpentry trade as practiced in Canada is covered in four comprehensive sections: Tools and Materials, Rough Carpentry, Exterior Finish, and Interior Finish. Each section features step-by-step procedures for all stages of construction, important safety precautions, tips of the trade, and a look at anticipated future trends in the construction industry. The engaging design and layout is accompanied by a focus on necessary soft skills and features that build necessary critical thinking skills ("What's Wrong With This Picture" and "Deconstruct This"). All measurements are given in both imperial and metric systems.MindTap helps theory come alive with interactive learning tools, videos and animations for kinesthetic and visual learners while the learning path keeps students on track. This engaging resource prepares apprentices for their future careers like nothing else on the market.
