Building Construction I - HTC310
Times Offered: 10:33am-12:03pm, 12:30pm - 2:00pm
The first year of the Building Construction program provides skill training in the area of residential and light commercial building construction. We begin with a respectful look at the understanding of Safety in the Building Construction Industry. Construction tools and equipment are then introduced to practice the many skills that are necessary for the residential construction career fields. Students perform measuring tasks and measurement computations. They also will learn and practice safe power and hand tool use. First year students build sawhorses, picnic tables, storage buildings as well as support the second year Building Construction program in some of their school year projects. Curricular components of the program include OSHA 10 training, reading project plans, understanding basic building materials, concrete, and wood framing of floors, walls, and roofs.

Building Construction II - HTC410
Times Offered: 9:00am - 10:30am
Second year students continue their experiences in light residential construction by extending their previously learned knowledge towards more challenging aspects of the industry. Students in year two explore new curricular components such as closing-in residential structures, windows and doors, interior finishes, trim, and insulation. Second year students are expected to be prepared with the correct work wear and personal protective equipment as they build projects at off-campus construction sites. Second year students are also expected to create digital portfolios, develop a resume, embark on career exploratory activities such as job shadows and internships, demonstrate strong attendance, and maintain excellent behavior as they represent the program in community projects and activities.
