Students will learn and apply the concepts of plumb, level, and square through practical on-site applications. Emphasis is placed on "hands-on" learning and correcting mistakes. Construction areas covered in this program include: safety, hand and power tool operations, masonry skills, framing, roofing, siding, drywall hanging and finishing, door/trim applications, and estimating. Also, gain knowledge in electrical, cabinet making and more. In both the on-site and off-site programs, students will construct a residential home. Qualifying students can earn up to 12 direct college credits through Southwestern Michigan College!

I like this class...
There is so much to learn about construction. We built a house this year. All of the these tasks that I have learned I will use in the future.
