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 One-Year Residential Building & Renovation Certificate program at LCCC will assist you with earning employment in a variety of residential construction companies as well as in your own home.

Building on the Construction & Renovation Tradesman Short-Term Certificate, this one-year certificate program is designed to further your technical construction skills and provide an introduction to topics such as architecture, technical mathematics, and computer aided drafting. Your coursework will prepare you for an entry-level construction position, or you may continue your education and apply the credits toward an Associate of Applied Science in Construction Technology with major in Construction Engineering or Construction Management.
