    Students receive training in carpentry, masonry, plumbing and electricity both in layout and design and in remodeling and maintenance. They are taught to read blueprints, piping and wiring schematics, do estimating and costing. Classroom instruction is closely integrated with practical work in the Technical High School’s unique house building facility. Graduates can enter the employ of contractors or proceed to study for a degree in construction management, building management or carpentry technology.
