Students achieve a wide variety of hands-on experiences, all related to the multi-faceted construction industry. Experiences will be acquired through: proper use of technical vocabulary; interpretation and understanding of architectural drawings and blueprints; use of leveling and layout instruments; proper installation techniques of both concrete flat work and the laying up of masonry units; rough and finish carpentry; insulation, drywall hanging, and finishing; building codes and laws; and general construction safety. Students have opportunities to use a wide array of power and hand-held tools.
