Construction Technology

Classroom, lab and hands-on learning will cover the following: construction site safety, blueprint reading, construction math, construction codes, metal fabrication, and much more! Everyone enrolled in our construction trade program work collectively to build a residential home. Together, you'll learn the specialized skills, industry collaboration and carefully managed timing it takes to build a house from the blueprint stage to testing the doorbell. This real-life application gives you the added advantage of experience with the entire construction process rather than the isolated theory of a singular construction field.picture of construction students working with the teacher.

With your construction technology program experience, you will have the fundamental knowledge to participate in construction site carpentry, electrical work and plumbing/HVAC projects. This certificate also provides the foundation you'll need to work toward diplomas in apprenticeship-level careers such as plumbing/HVAC, construction electricity, masonry and carpentry.

All students at the Tech Center have the option to obtain an internship towards the end of their experience here. The philosophy is that there is invaluable knowledge and experience to be gained working side-by-side with a professional in an actual environment. Below are some of the great internships our students have had, thanks to Construction Technology!
