Program: Construction Technology

Overview

Construction Technology

The Construction Technology program has courses that can be divided into three major areas of emphasis: Residential Trades, Home Remodeling and Pre-apprenticeship. Knowing that a vast diversity of occupations exist within the construction industry and recognizing that individual student needs are diverse, a Certificate of Achievement can be designed that satisfies those specific needs.
