Gainful Employment Information

If you’re interested in construction or building trades and exploring a variety of jobs within the construction industry, NTC’s Construction Technology certificate is a great place to begin. The courses included in this certificate program will help you learn the basic concepts and skills you’ll need to assist with carpentry, residential plumbing/HVAC and construction electricity at construction sites.

Many learners who complete this certificate choose to continue working toward a diploma at NTC. All credits earned toward the Construction Technology certificate may be applied towards specialized technical core programs such as residential plumbing/HVAC, electrical construction and maintenance or carpentry. Our collaborative construction technology program also includes advanced training in sustainable construction and eco-friendly green building so you are prepared for emerging careers in those technologies.

Classroom, lab and hands-on learning will cover the following:

  • construction site safety,
  • blueprint reading,
  • construction math,
  • construction codes,
  • metal fabrication.

Everyone enrolled in our construction trade program work collectively to build a residential home. Together, you’ll learn the specialized skills, industry collaboration and carefully managed timing it takes to build a house from the blueprint stage to testing the doorbell. This real-life application gives you the added advantage of experience with the entire construction process rather than the isolated theory of a singular construction field.


With your construction technology program certificate, you will have the fundamental knowledge to participate in construction site carpentry, electrical work and plumbing/HVAC projects. This certificate also provides the foundation you’ll need to work toward diplomas in apprenticeship-level careers such as plumbing/HVAC, construction electricity and carpentry.
