Building TradesBuild a home while still in school? As a student enrolled in the Building Trades program, you can do just that!
Students will gain an understanding of the basic theories of carpentry using the tools and equipment of the trade. Students learn basic skills in residential construction, as they gain experience in drywall installation, rough framing, roofing, siding, installing mill work, casings and cabinets. Students learn how to properly and safely use and maintain trade tools, receive instruction in building codes and blueprint reading. Students will work on small projects and build a home during each of their two years of study.
