The Bitterroot Valley, nestled between the Bitterroot and the Sapphire ranges of the Rocky Mountains just south of Missoula, is our own quiet little slice of heaven. The rugged beauty of the great outdoors is the main attraction here, and a good day is measured in how many miles you hiked, how many different species of animals you spotted, or how many hours your fishing line was in the river. If your soul is longing for fresh air, breath-taking vistas, pristine rivers and deep blue sky, then come; the Bitterroot Valley will fill your senses to the brim.

If you are ready to enter the big leagues of woodworking, then consider joining the club!
The Woodworking Career Training Center is Chidwick School's response to the Skills Gap crisis our nation is facing. With the return of manufacturing jobs to our shores, we as a nation are woefully underprepared to meet the demand for high-tech, skilled labor demands--particularly in the woods manufacturing sector, which is predicted to grow faster than any other sector. Applications for students are now available, as are industry partnership opportunities. To learn more about WCTC, please contact Andy Chidwick.
By the end of the school year, public school shop teachers can get really burnt out. Often feeling alone and discouraged, shop teachers can be left feeling undervalued and isolated even questioning their skills, passion and purpose. The Woodworking Coach provides a unique solution for these teachers who need support, training and encouragement by providing a intensive 6-day woodworking experience.
