Building Construction Technology
The construction industry is booming with over 5% growth each year and not enough workers to meet the demand. In this program, students gain knowledge in reading blueprints and detailed drawings, perform construction mathematics and train in carpentry, electricity, masonry, and plumbing. By the time you finish at Tech High, you will have volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and gained the knowledge to obtain the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) and OSHA certifications.
