Construction | Dipl

The Construction program provides you with the knowledge and skills needed for employment as a carpenter or concrete specialist. Study includes residential and commercial construction, with all phases explored and applied on a job site or in the lab. Specialized coursework includes drywall installation and finishing, wall framing, construction estimating, concrete stamping, and interior finishing.

As a graduate of the program you may be employed in general carpentry work, commercial carpentry, or may specialize in one area such as finish carpentry. Career potential includes foreman of a construction company or owning your own construction company.

Another advantage or a WITCC Construction education is the accelerated rate of advancement that our graduates experience. Quite often Construction graduates enter into the field slightly above entry-level positions. Because of their educational background, you can quickly advance to crew leaders, foremen, and field supervisors. After gaining experience, you may go on to own their own businesses because of the formal training and experience in the program.

All Construction students are required to have their own personal tool set to use for classroom/lab projects.
