Course Description:

Effective 2024-2025, Construction Management & Trades will no longer be available.

This construction management & trades program explores a wide range of different careers within the construction industry. This is a year long program and students will have the opportunity to earn two career certifications. During the first semester, students will earn the HBI PACT Core (Home Builders Institute – Pre-Apprenticeship Certificate Training) During the second semester, students will earn their OSHA-10 certification in Construction.
