    Program Profile
    As the building industry continues its growth in the Miami Valley, career opportunities in a variety of construction-related trades are expanding daily. Construction Technology is a multi-pathway program that gives students the skills to succeed in these construction careers.
    Initially you will be introduced to the basics of tool use and safety, carpentry, masonry, drywall installation, basic plumbing, basic electric and roofing. The senior year will expand on those skills as you focus on areas of concentration.
    Recent student-led construction projects have been displayed at the Greene County Fair with many of them being purchased by community members for their personal use.

    Credentials play an important role in career advancement in the construction industry and this program offers opportunities for growth through the NCCER certification program and from the Associated Builders and Contractors trade association.
    Seniors in good standing may take advantage of job placement or the apprenticeship program. Both initiatives offer earning potential while giving you valuable work experience and the needed credits toward your diploma.
