The construction building trades program is designed to prepare students for employment in the construction trades. When students have completed this class, they have many options.  They are prepared to join the workforce as laborers, apprentices, and possible trades people, and/or they can go to a college, university, or trade school to further their education. Eventually, a student’s goal may be business ownership in an area of construction trades.

Students learn to use the equipment and technology as it applies to site clearing, building layout, excavation, foundations, framing, roofing, siding, and finish work for a new home. The students will be involved with various construction projects in a lab setting. Safety is strictly emphasized. Prior industrial arts course work is helpful and substantial math skills are needed.
