Construction and development advances in science and technology will continue to drive innovation in the design, construction, infrastructure, and maintenance of buildings. Our construction program allows students to advance their knowledge in specific construction trades or in construction management.
This curriculum will ground the trainee in the basic knowledge and principles of carpentry, masonry, concrete finishing, electrical work and plumbing. Our students will become skilled in different phases of a project from start to finish and have gained the basic skills needed to continue education in any craft area he or she chooses to pursue.
Students will cover topics such as OSHA safety, communication skills and construction math, which are a few of the 21st-century job skills needed in today’s workforce.
After completing this three or four-year pathway, the trainee will be able to:
- interpret construction drawings
- perform quality concrete and brickwork
- frame walls and ceilings, and floors of a structure
- install the proper wiring and piping for electrical and plumbing in residential systems
This program is based on the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) standards; graduates meet apprenticeship training requirements and may earn industry certification and college credit through articulation agreements with community colleges.
