After nearly a decade of recession and slowed construction growth in Northeast Ohio and across the US, construction jobs are more competitive than ever. Formal training and technical experience are necessary to compete, and learning must continue even after you start a job. The skills learned in the short-term Construction & Renovation Tradesman Certificate program at LCCC will assist you with earning employment in a variety of residential construction companies as well as in your own home.

This program is designed to provide you with fundamental knowledge and hands-on experience in a variety of trades, including carpentry, electricity, HVAC, and plumbing. Your coursework will prepare you for an entry-level construction position, or you may continue your education and apply the credits toward the Residential Building & Renovation One-Year Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science in Construction Technology with major in Construction Engineering or Construction Management.
