Building Construction Technologies

Program Competencies

Are you the type of person who takes pride in being able to create things with your own hands?  Learn basic skills in carpentry, hand and power tool safety, framing, remodeling, materials usage, green building and much more.

As students progress in their skills, they go on to learn more about topics such as energy efficiency, interior work and trim, plumbing and electrical planning, blueprint reading and drafting using AutoCAD.  By the time students have completed the two-year program at SST, they will have all of the skills to do interior and exterior carpentry work on building projects large and small.

SST Building Construction Technologies students hone their skills by working on a variety of real construction and renovation projects in our local community.  Over 25 homes, garages, and other major buildings, along with many smaller structures, have been built by SST students since 1980.

Building Construction Technologies students compete in  SkillsUSA local and national competitions, which helps to build leadership and professional skills.  Upon graduation, many students choose to continue their education at highly-respected colleges and training programs throughout the U.S.
