*Building Your Future*


The building and construction trades field creates housing and commercial development for our ever-increasing demands. The industry generates opportunities for laborers, helpers, skilled workers, sales, and management positions. The dynamic nature of the program provides challenging opportunities for advancement.


Carpenters are craftsmen who convert plans into realities.  The work may involve new construction or remodeling existing structures and dwellings.  A skilled carpenter can do all types of carpentry.

Intro to Building Construction Technology

Students have the opportunity to explore a hands-on class by working with hand tools and power tools.  Students will learn safety and basic carpentry skills through small applied learning projects.


Building Construction Technology I


This is a great program for those students Interested in becoming a carpenter, who want to be able to work on their own house, or just want to obtain skills that would qualify them for summer employment as a carpenter's helper. Students who complete this course will be able to use basic carpentry tools safely and proficiently as well as be able to identify, produce, and install basic framing, siding and roofing components.


Building Construction Technology II


Students in this course continue to hone their building and carpentry skills. Students work and study off-site at a project in the community. The project simulates a typical construction site where students learn and practice the necessary skills. Students become more proficient and accurate while also learning more framing techniques, interior finishing skills, insulation installation, and knowledge of the building hardware needed to complete a typical house.


Building Construction Technology III


Students who are serious about building and want to continue in the carpentry or related fields can consider continuing for a third year. BCT 3 students will reinforce and continue to develop their skills while also learning how to be a leader on the worksite. At the end of the course students will be able to identify, produce, and install most components that a typical carpenter's helper would be responsible for in the construction of a typical house and have one year of leadership experience in the completion of a live project.

Articulation Agreement


The Building Construction program has articulated its curriculum with Central Maine Technical College (CMCC).  CMCC students may obtain college credits for the learning opportunities offered through this technical program.  As part of this agreement, students have to be enrolled for a semester and prove they have met the requirements of the agreement.
