Building Trades Technician is “Real World”

Posted by on October 21, 2014

Highlighting the Building Trades Technician program this month, the program is constantly reviewing and updating its education strategies to meet the needs of the local community.  Students who enter the program can be assured of graduating with a working knowledge of plumbing, electrical, HVAC, carpentry and on the job safety and blueprint reading.  The newest addition to the program is the concept of “bringing it all together”.  Students work in teams to build free standing structures where real-world standards are implementing.  Students incorporate electrical, carpentry and finishing work, tile and general contracting principles of construction to create the finished product.  Additionally, students work on the freestanding full size home structure within the facility to employ working plumbing, electrical and HVAC work.
