This two-year program covers all aspects of residential construction. You can earn your 10-hour MiOSHA safety certification during the first year in the program, which means you’ll be eligible to actually work in the field – even before you graduate.

Key Highlights

  • Work on an actual home site every day
  • Operate a full range of portable and stationary power tools
  • Learn the entire start-to-finish process of home building
