The Construction Technology students receive their OSHA 10 certification & take the NOCTI Carpentry test. Construction occupations, including home building and light commercial construction, are the basis of the program. Classroom instruction involves the introduction of technical information pertaining to the building trades industry, including the construction of various projects in the Northland. Students spend much of their time outdoors at the construction site where safety is our first priority.
