Construction Technology

Program Information

Enjoy working with your hands and working with a team?  At the Career Center’s main campus, students in the Construction Technology program spend two years building a high-quality modular home from the ground up. Students work in teams and independently in all aspects of construction including framing, roofing, plumbing, wiring, and interior/exterior finishing while learning to operate a wide range of professional hand, power, and air tools.   Time spent with aerial work platforms and telehandlers allows students to gain an even wider range of construction experience.  Students will also participate in smaller projects as they take part in community service.  The Career Center is a registered modular home builder.
