Program: Construction Technology
The Construction Technology program has courses that can be divided into three major areas of emphasis: Residential Trades, Home Remodeling and Pre-apprenticeship. Knowing that a vast diversity of occupations exist within the construction industry and recognizing that individual student needs are diverse, a Certificate of Achievement can be designed that satisfies those specific needs. Completion of the Certificate of Completion satisfies the major requirement for the Associates in Science degree in Construction Technology.
