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.

Qualifying students in this program can receive certification through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and Industry Credential Certifications for OSHA 10 hr, Aerial Work Platforms, and Class 7 Telehandler Forklift.  

Students in this program also may qualify for articulated college credit.

House Auctioned in May Goes to New Location

The CT house completed last spring and auctioned off in May has left the room.  In early August workers separated the house into two sections, folded down the roof, removed the dormers, and secured all the parts as they made ready to move the structure down the highway to its new location on Rt 39 between Loudonville and Millersburg.  Thanks and best wishes to the lucky buyers.


CT Students Already at Work

CT students hit the ground running in the second week of school as they helped to pour the concrete walkway outside the new Animal & Veterinary Science lab.  There was no hesitation when the cement truck arrived and  students literally dug into the work.  Any construction company could find quality employees in this group of CT students.
