Building and Construction Trades Major

Building and Construction Trades

The building industry faces a shortage of 65,000 to 80,000 skilled craft workers each year. This shortage is expected to continue into the next decade due to job growth projections, declining workforce numbers, and lack of training opportunities. To address these needs, the Building Construction Trades program offers a diploma in Air Conditioning/ Refrigeration Mechanics, and six certificates: HVAC Installer, HVAC Service Technician, Masonry, Residential/Commercial Carpentry, Residential/Commercial Plumbing, and Residential/Commercial Wiring. Students must complete one of the above mentioned certificates before entering the Building Construction Management Certificate. The Building Construction Trades programs are accredited by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Home Builders Institute (HBI).
