Construction Technology 
Certificates Level I, Level II, & AAS

The Construction Technology program allows students the opportunity to complete certificates at two levels and to transfer these certificates toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Engineering Technology.  The Level I Construction Technology certificate is for students who intend to seek entry-level employment after completing a one-year program of study. The level II certificate is for students interested in advancing their skill level beyond Level I.

The curriculum utilizes National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) a nationally-recognized credentialing and certification system.  This National Registry system assures portability of skills by providing transcripts, certificates, and wallet cards to students who successfully complete the program.  

Career areas can include carpenter, electrician, brick and block mason, plumber, drywall installer, construction laborer, construction supervisor and more.    

Prerequisites
The student will need to demonstrate proficiencies in reading, English, and mathematics based on the COMPASS assessment test, ACT or SAT scores, or by taking the recommended/required classes.  

General Education (GE) Courses
In order to obtain the Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Engineering Technology, general education courses must be taken.   The student’s program advisor will recommend appropriate general education courses based upon the student’s background and career objectives.  

Program Elective Courses
The Level I Construction Technology certificate requires the completion of 16 credit hours of courses in the technical career area.  The Level II Construction Technology certificate requires the completion of 32 credit hours of courses in the technical career area.  Additional technical courses should be discussed with the student’s academic advisor and may be selected based upon specific goals and requirements.
