General Construction


The General Construction program introduces participants to a wide variety of concepts, tools, and skills that are important to successfully begin a career as a Construction Craft Laborer. Participants receive instruction on the work and role of a CCL, commonly encountered safety issues, measurement in construction, safe hand and power tool operation, and materials frequently used in construction. Each topic is presented in a separate module, several of which require students to perform tasks or demonstrate skills being taught. Special emphasis is placed on following proper procedures and developing safe work habits.
