The Construction Technology course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to train in the field of Construction Trades, and to obtain specific technical skills necessary for both new construction and remodeling projects. Included in this course are classroom and work-based learning experiences related to safety, construction processes, rough and finished carpentry standards, buildings standards and codes, construction materials, new technology, tools and equipment and career opportunities. Students will receive instruction in the classroom, shop, laboratory, and on job sites. Students will receive certifications in Construction Industry Safety (SP/2, OSHA10) and safe equipment operation (skip loader and skid steer). All methods of instruction are aligned to Construction Industry Standards.
