School and Training Program Selection Criteria

Students should consider these important considerations when choosing a school:

  • Diploma and certificate programs in cabinet design may often be completed between one semester and one year.
  • Students should consider a school with cabinet design programs that focus on hands-on shop activities with state-of-the-art tools.
  • A program with an internship, practicum or comprehensive design project can help students reinforce key skills and provide valuable experience.
  • Students should consider a program that helps them prepare a work portfolio.

Certificate Program

A cabinet design certificate program provides a combination of hands-on and technical courses. Credits earned through some certificate programs can be applied toward an associate's degree.

Associate's Degree

Associate's degree programs teach both basic and advanced skills in cabinet design and fabrication. These programs provide more opportunities for students to design cabinets as well as other furniture.

Cabinet design programs involve hands-on training and technical courses. Some programs may offer internships and practicums and may help students build a portfolio of their work to help them find work in the field.
