Building Trades (West Holmes High School)

Program Information

This program is located at the West Holmes High School campus, Millersburg.  Like students in the Construction Technology program at the Career Center’s main campus, students in Building Trades will spend two years constructing a 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. 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.  

Students in this program may qualify for articulated college credit.
