Residential Construction/Heavy Equipment

Opportunities abound for experienced equipment operators and construction professionals. The Residential Construction/Heavy Equipment program prepares students for entry-level employment or further education. Students rotate through three key areas: general construction techniques and tools, preventive equipment maintenance and equipment operation. They learn through standardized craft training programs developed by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and the Home Builders Institute (HBI) of the National Association of Home Builders. 

Topics of study include workplace safety and management, tools, blueprints and framing, and operation and maintenance of backhoes, skidsteers and excavators. Students build communication and employability skills and may earn math credit. Work-based experiences, field trips, guest speakers and competitions reinforce hands-on and classroom learning.

Residential Construction/Heavy Equipment students who pass written and performance exams can earn NCCER and/or HBI certifications, which are recognized nationwide by contractors and employers. Upon completion of the program, students may continue their education through the Commercial Construction/Heavy Equipment program or enter theworkforce, apprenticeship programs or college.
