I am getting really frustrated with the community college system here. I have been looking for construction training courses and I came across two, D35180 (Carpentry) and D35140 (Building Construction).
I have been going in circles talking to the Course Directors of these courses and various colleges asking them what the difference is (as the Colleges offer one or the other but not both) and I’m getting absolutely nowhere. It’s like the course directors have no idea what they are teaching or why.
I have very carefully laid out my question and despite countless communication, I am still no closer to finding out what the actual difference is between the courses. From the descriptions on the college websites, they appear to be identical with the exception that “Carpentry I, II and III” has been replaced with the words “Construction I, II and III”.
How do I accurately and correctly compare these and what they offer and what the point of each one is? and then how do i find out which College is the best at providing the course I have selected??
This is a really simple ask, I don’t understand why 8 weeks later I still can’t get an answer to this insanely fundamental question.
TLDR: How do i find out what the difference is between these courses when the course directors themselves cannot tell me and keep regurgitating the same generic responses. And then how do i find out which college does it best?
