What Is The Center For Construction Technologies?
Why Should I Enroll In The
Center For Construction
The Center for Construction Technologies is a program that gives students in grades nine through twelve the opportunity to learn a construction trade while in high school.
The program is designed for students to earn both a high school diploma and industry recognized National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) certifications at the same
time. By the time students graduate, they will be at a more advanced stage to enter postsecondary education, apprenticeship training or enter the
workplace at a higher wage.
St. Petersburg High School’s Center for Construction Technologies has teamed with Pinellas Technical Education Center St. Petersburg (pTEC) to offer students a unique program. There are five construction trade fields that students may choose from: Carpentry, Electrical, Heating/Ventilation & Air Conditioning, Masonry, and Plumbing.
Grades 9 -10: students enroll in a daily one-period Construction Technology I/II class. They will learn construction related skills through hands-on activities. Students have the opportunity to earn an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10 certification, First Aid/AED and NCCER certifications.
Grades 11 – 12: students enroll in a daily three-period block at pTEC St. Petersburg in one of the five construction trades. Students have the opportunity to earn NCCER certifications, a 900-hour Florida Pre- Apprenticeship Completion Certificate and Gold Seal Scholarships.
Upon high school graduation, WorkNet Pinellas, with local industry, assists program graduates with future employment. In addition, graduates have opportunities to work toward journeyman status in their chosen construction trade
