Free Hands-On, One-on-One Learning

If you’re interested in working in a residential construction trade but don’t have the skills or experience to get a job as an apprentice, you can apply. We provide you with the training and skills you need during our free 26-week pre-apprenticeship training. Programs start in January and July.  

Computer-Aided Design (CAD)

Included in your training, you’ll also learn Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software, blueprint reading and project planning.  With these skills, you’ll be able to design and create three-dimensional (3D) models so you can learn all aspects of residential construction in a digital environment.

Design & Build Modular Homes

As part of the curriculum, our students will build and fully service multiple 1,100 square foot bungalows on site or in our production building to be sold as affordable housing. We’re offering a truly hands-on experience. Want to be part of this exciting venture?
