Program Overview

Build the future you want, literally. Construction is projected to be one of the most highly demanded jobs through 2022, with an estimated 1.4 million NEW craft professionals needed according to the Construction Labor Market Analyzer, October 2018. Tri County Tech’s Construction Technology program prepares students to meet that demand and begin a career in the trades. With pathways into carpentry, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and more, this program provides a foundation of skills that will help you be successful in the industry. Upon completion of the program, students will earn six nationally recognized NCCER (National Center of Construction Education and Research) Level 1 certifications covering all four trades, along with an OSHA 10 certification and forklift license. This program has been approved by the Mechanical Construction Industry (CIB) Board for 250 hours of apprenticeship in HVAC. Work with your hands to build the future you want, learn proper techniques to be successful in the industry, and start your career as a craft professional.

“My favorite thing about the construction program at Tri County is that we go beyond the textbook, we get exposed to a lot of things out there in the shop” – Adrian P., 2019
