Building Technology - Carpentry

The Building Technology Program gives the student hands-on experience in the actual construction of a home. The student will be involved in all phases from planning and estimating to foundation, framing, and finishing work.

All of the classroom and building experiences are conducted by instructors who are experienced in general contracting and teaching. While the primary emphasis of this program is residential construction, certain processes found in commercial building are also covered.
