Construction Trades (Technical Diploma)

Construction work is about using your skills to solve problems on the job site—no two days are alike. Demand is always high for construction workers, and high salaries are common for more advanced skills.

It is a great career for those looking to avoid or break out of the office cubicle.

The construction trades offer incredible opportunity for anyone looking to use their hands, make an impact in their community, and earn a great salary. What construction workers have in common is the ability to use their hands and skills to help build things people depend on—the buildings we work in, the homes we live and play in, and more. It’s honest, satisfying work that makes the world go around.

Construction workers are skilled by definition, and they are always learning and growing in their abilities. Some work for residential or commercial contractors, while others own their own business.
