There is ongoing demand for qualified construction workers for new building construction, home renovation and repairs. Many of the job opportunities require specific skills, such as document reading, carpentry, electrical wiring, plumbing and more. To gain employment in the construction industry, applicants are often required to demonstrate prior industry experience or training. The hands-on training provided at LCCC meets both of these requirements and ensure that you have the fundamental background knowledge and tactical skills to be successful.

The Construction program offers a short-term certificate that can be earned in one semester, a one-year certificate, and Associate Degrees. Of course, you may choose to further your education beyond LCCC through our University Partnership or transfer programs.
