Construction Technology

The Construction Technology Program is certified by the Association of General Contractors (AGC).  Construction occupations, including home building and light commercial construction, are the basis of the program.  Classroom instruction involves the introduction of technical information pertaining to the building trades industry, including the construction of various projects in the Northland. Students spend much of their time outdoors at the construction site where safety is our first priority.

To complete all the required skills, high school students attend two and a half hours per day for two school years.  Adults may complete in one year by attending five hours per day.
