Residential Construction - Advanced Certificate

Program Code: CTA.35889

The Certificate Program is designed to prepare you for jobs in rough carpentry and house framing with the skills you have learned in such areas as: job specifications and drawings, building materials, use of woodworking and surveying tools, cost estimations, concrete work, and exterior finishing. Completion of this program preempts years of apprenticeship in the construction field. You may become self-employed or find employment with a contractor or in a building supply center.

In addition to skills gained from courses completed in the Residential Construction Certificate Program, students completing the Associate degree will have learned construction techniques in interior trim, cabinet making and installation, equipment installation, and interior finishing. The Program also offers the breadth of education necessary for a successful self-employed business or lumberyard management and has the support of the home builders association.
