For adults interested in a career in construction, this one-year program will prepare you for immediate placement in a job, union pathway, or for continuing your education in a construction-related degree. This course is part of the the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) at Chattanooga.
Employers in the construction industry will be working with educators at the Construction Career Center to provide hands-on demonstrations, job site visits, mentorships, and paid work-based learning opportunities. Our goal is 100% placement for every student going through the program.
