Residential Construction A.O.S.
The Residential Construction A.O.S. curriculum is designed to provide students with an educational background that will prepare them for a career in the residential building industry, including the retail sales of building materials.
Practical, hands–on experience is emphasized through course work in construction techniques, energy systems, sanitation, masonry systems, foundation concepts and surveying. In addition to technical skills, the program is designed to develop business skills by exposing students to course work in business law, accounting, employee supervision and public speaking.
In addition to construction–related courses, students may choose from a range of electives in areas such as natural resources, small power equipment, welding, business and engineering. The home building industry covers a range of occupations from framing and carpentry to estimating and sales. Morrisville’s hands–on program allows students to gain the knowledge necessary to become qualified professionals in this industry.
Students taking classes in business, masonry, plumbing, heating and wood products will have the opportunity to practice the skills they have learned in the classroom. Students in other classes, such as landscape architectural design and surveying, also participate.
