The construction industry is one of the largest employers in the country. This course combines classroom instruction with hands-on training to enable graduates to work in the residential or commercial construction fields as framers, roofers, finish carpenters, trim carpenters or cabinet makers. Other topics include siding and blueprint reading. As part of the hands-on training, students will actually build a complete house from the foundation up in this two-year program. The house is then available for sale at an end-of-the-year auction.
