    This is a cluster course designed to provide a basic understanding of career opportunities, training requirements and minimal skills in construction related careers.  Also included in the course are skills training of the core tools of the building trades industries in carpentry,  .  The NCCER Core curriculum certification process begins during this course. Student will do the OSHA, 10 Hour-Construction Safety training, if they complete the requirements, they will be receiving 10 hour OSHA card. Students in this course will have the opportunity to participate in leadership activities and contest through the student leadership organization SkillsUSA.

     

    Students Will:

     

    Recall information alone or in a Group

    Summarize key concepts and processes alone {Assessment} or in a group {performance}

    Apply skills and knowledge in a given context.

     

    COURSE OBJECTIVES:

     

    To give a basic understanding of all the various areas of construction; how it is organized, how it is controlled, its impacts on society, and opportunities it offers.  This is accomplished in a” hands-on” format with labs supplementing the text information.

    Class Duration:  One School Year, Credit: 2

     

    Prerequisite: 10/12 grades, Successful Completion of Principles of Construction.

     

    Construction Technology: continues the basic materials covered in the Core Curriculum progressing in more detail and is designed to guide the students, developing hands-on skills. Terminology is emphasized throughout this course.

     

    Construction Technology is designed as a model with flexibility built in for the instructor to best use teachable opportunities.  On-the-job field trips are used to the maximum to expose the students to all work related training areas. Students in this course will have the opportunity to participate in leadership activities and contest through the student leadership organization; SkillsUSA.

     

    The course is recognized throughout the nation and progress is reported to the national headquarters.  If, for any reason, the student does not complete the course while in high school, he or she can pick up where they left off at any other recognized National Center for Construction Education and Research. (“NCCER”) learning center.
