Welcome to the Construction Career Center! We are building bright futures in construction through skills training, career coaching, paid work-based learning, and support to get students on a lucrative career path in construction for a lifetime of success.
Students learn real skills to build a skyscraper – electrical, structures, carpentry, masonry, concrete, plumbing, and more -and how those systems work together in the building process. By getting exposure to all of the elements of construction, students can make a sound decision on the construction path they want to follow.
Success is just on the other side of graduation! High school students earn dual high school and college credit, receive paid work-based learning, and graduate with nationally recognized construction certifications. And construction jobs pay great! Starting salaries are $17 – $30 per hour with unlimited earning and growth potential in this high-demand field.
Whether you want to start making money on the job right after graduation or continue on to a 4-year degree, the Construction Career Center will set you on the right track without accruing massive amounts of college debt.
