ROCK TAVERN – As the economy continues to bounce back, the demand for tradesmen and women is increasing.

In an effort to meet that need, the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters has opened a new training facility in Rock Tavern.

Now more than ever, there is a need for people qualified in the trades, said Jim Hayes, assistant executive director of the Carpenters Training Fund.

“Our youth is eager to learn and we need them to learn faster than ever because with people not getting into the trades like they used to, and people retiring in that Baby Boomer era, we then to train even faster than ever before,” he said.

Prior to the opening of the new facility in the Hudson Valley, carpenter apprentices had to train in Albany.
