Skills are developed in the areas of blueprint reading, site layout, estimating, foundation work, framing, interior and exterior work, and using both hand and power tools for residential and commercial projects. The Career Connections program teaches important hands-on skills for all students, but it also gives those students who aren’t college-bound another avenue for success after graduation. With the use of Career Connections comes an articulation agreement and students earn credits toward the apprenticeship program while still in high school. After completing each book, students receive a certificate of completion showing the credit they’ve earned. Level 1 Certificate, Level 2 Certificate and Level 3 Certificate are in residential construction. The Certificate affords the student a clear pathway to a career in construction through the United Brotherhood of Carpenters Apprenticeship training.
