The Construction program provides students with an introduction to carpentry, masonry (brick and block laying), plumbing, cabinet-making, and electrical fundamentals. Students are taught general building techniques, knowledge of building materials, and instruction on the use of hand and power tools. After successfully completing the program, students will be registered with the National Center for Construction Education and Research . They can continue to train through apprenticeship programs at several levels. Some of these programs are general contractors, estimators, journeyman, foreman, and project manager.
