Construction Technologies 1
This is the first year of a two-year sequence of courses designed to teach students the basics of residential construction and help them explore career opportunities in the construction industry. The first semester focuses on job site safety as well as identifying and using tools safely and correctly.
Design and construction of floor systems, framing walls, and roofing systems will also be reviewed and practiced during the first year. Students will have the opportunity to construct modular homes in an indoor friendly environment. They will also work on a handful of other projects such as sheds and the construction of smaller structures.

Students who have a serious interest in the construction industry will find this second year course gives them the skills to enter the job market, and also prepares them to go on to a two, or four-year college program in a construction related field. The class will work together on larger structures using hand tools and power tools.
During the second year students will have the opportunity to complete their 10-hour OSHA® Safety Certification online. They may also choose to complete the National Metal Building Contractor's Training course and test online to earn this credential. Both of these certifications are valuable credentials for students to add to their portfolio as they enter the work force.
