The construction curriculum is designed to offer you technical and hands-on training which will prepare you for entry into the construction industry. You will build residential structures on and off campus. You will receive instruction in residential construction with an emphasis on quality construction.
Through hands-on training, successful completion enables you to enter into the construction industry as an advanced apprentice with masonry, framing, roofing, plumbing, and/or electrical skills. Throughout the program, you prepare for the California Residential Code certification and may take NCCER industry certifications.
