Building Construction Technologies

The Building Construction Technologies program offers a sequence of courses that provides coherent and rigorous content and skills needed to prepare for further education and careers that support both students who plan to enter the workforce immediately after graduation and those who plan to attend college. Students continuing to college may obtain dual credit (both high school and college credit) while attending high school.

While working on projects, students learn through experience how to work in teams, both as team leaders and team members. They use algebra and geometry to solve construction problems and learn green building techniques. All classes emphasize safety, including OSHA requirements, while learning construction skills.

Students will become proficient in the technical skills that includes competency-based applied learning that contributes to the academic knowledge, higher-order reasoning and problem-solving skills, work attitudes, general employability skills, technical skills and occupation-specific skills, and knowledge of all aspects of the Architecture & Construction career cluster.

Electricity

CarpentryElectricity is essential for light, power, air conditioning, refrigeration, and so many of the conveniences we take for granted every day. Electrical technicians install, connect, test, and maintain electrical systems that bring electricity from power generating plants to our homes, offices, schools, and places of business.

The Electricity program instructs students in the compliance with National Electrical Codes and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as providse an overview of the basic fundamentals of electricity.

Electricians generally specialize in construction, maintenance work, or both. Construction work provides the knowledge and technical skills such as installing wiring systems in new homes, businesses, and factories or rewiring or upgrading existing electrical systems. Maintenance work involves maintaining and upgrading existing electrical systems and repairing electrical equipment.
