The Construction Technology Program allows students to develop skills related to the use of tools and materials used in construction practices to safely transform common wood materials into useful products. Students pursuing an occupation in the trades will learn to read plans and blueprints, measure accurately, apply various types of finishes, use tools and machines safely, watch out for safety hazards, etc. These skills will be a vital part of your safe work habits that you bring forward to a job in any of the trades.
This class will also benefit students who are not planning on going into the trades, by providing useful life skills. Students will learn how to build real practical projects, and how to fix things, build storage devices, or do their own home renovations, enabling them to save money in many areas in the future.
