Construction Technology, Certificate of Achievement (C)
The need for residential and commercial construction is a fact of every society. With local, state, and national infrastructure (creation and maintenance) falling behind, the construction trades will more and more be in demand. With the "Green" or Sustainabililty direction the country is going in now, training in green job skills is imperative. And with the recent application of building science to the construction industry, new building performance standards will have to be learned by all workers, contractors, and designers.
Santa Barbara City College's Construction Technology Department offers comprehensive training for entry-level positions in industry, mid-level and advanced training for encumbent workers, and green building and building science training for architects, contractors, and those entering the construction trades.
Full credit is granted for each course successfully completed. Students who complete the 41.1 units of required Construction Technology courses earn a Certificate of Achievement in Construction Technology. Those who also complete Institutional and General Education course requirements earn the Associate in Science degree in Construction Technology. The department offers all courses with an open-door policy--both for majors and non-majors.
