Students in construction technology are learning to build a bright future. Through the Heartland’s Institute of Technology, students perform math operations such as estimating and distributing materials and supplies to complete jobsite tasks. Students also learn basic safety, problem solving, teamwork skills, building materials, components, methods, and sequences in residential construction.
Second year students come back to learn a higher level of skills in construction related to trades along with an overview of career opportunities available. This program partners with the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters Union, which allows students who successfully complete the program with a seamless transition into a construction career while being paid to further their education. Students may earn Geometry credit through successful completion of curriculum, in addition to the state mandated math curriculum.
