The Building Trades program provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter either residential or commercial construction fields. Classroom work focuses on familiarizing the students with basic knowledge of construction materials. Laboratory activities emphasize practical, hands-on skills needed in the building trades.
The last semester is devoted to applying classroom theory and lab skills in an actual construction job, either residential or commercial.
