CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY is an exciting new course that will prepare students with occupational skills in the areas of blueprint reading, carpentry, electrical systems, masonry and plumbing. This incredible opportunity gives the individual a hands-on introduction to the construction building trades. Students will research and design both renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, including the construction of residential structures. These skills can be applied to a wide range of careers. Also, safety is key in this industry, which is why it's our priority to identify appropriate hand and power tool usage. Upon completing this course, students will also be eligible to earn college credits and/or industry certification, including the introduction to apprenticeship opportunities.
Also new to this program is the very popular Geometry in Construction. This course offers a unique hands-on approach, giving the student a visual aspect to geometry within industry standards.
Class fees/supplies: OSHA $10 to $15; CPR $12; strongly recommended membership in SkillsUSA ($20).
