To help students prepare for entry-level positions in the building construction trades, College of the Canyons has added six new construction technology courses to its curriculum.
Starting in the fall 2018 semester, Plumbing Technology (Construction 010), Electrical Technology (Construction 020) and Carpentry Technology (Construction 030) will be taught at the college’s Canyon Country campus.
Construction 012, 022 and 032 — which build on the skills taught in their introductory counterparts — will be taught during the spring 2019 semester.
“We are very excited about adding these six new construction technology courses to our program,” said Eric Arnold, chair of the college’s construction management and technology department. “Our goal is to give students the skills and hands-on training they need to be successful in the growing construction technology field and these courses will play an essential role in accomplishing that.”
Construction Technology students at COC can earn an Associate in Science or a Certificate of Achievement, which provides them with the basic skills required to enter a building construction career.
