Fall River Training Center

The RCWP Team celebrated its 2021-2 Second Cohort of the 15-Week VESL, Vocational English as a Second Language Basic Carpentry Graduates at their Central Falls Vocational Training Facility with City Officials on Tuesday, September 14th. VESL students and the dynamic and dedicated RCWP Team were so excited and couldn’t wait to unveil their class project, a shed with a porch and railing to dedicate to the City of Central Falls and the Community.

Congratulations to our hardworking graduates of the Basic Carpentry Training program! This program offers our residents a pathway into building a productive career in the construction industry by teaching important trade skills, carpentry knowledge, and providing support mapping out advancement steps in the industry. Thank you to the Rhode Island Builders Association for this invaluable program.
