Construction Equipment Technology

Construction Equipment Technology is a dream come true for those students who like machines! During the junior year students learn how to operate and maintain large equipment such as a backhoe, bulldozer, forklift, tractor, skid loader, an excavator, and a dump truck. Students are then taught concrete and masonry skills, surveying, mobile power repair, and mechanics. After being exposed to all of this, students enrolled in the program choose to specialize in one or more of these areas: CDL, heavy equipment operation and surveying, concrete and masonry, or mobile power equipment. At the end of the two-year program students will have career options as an excavation contractor, mobile power technician, truck driver/owner, heavy equipment operator, masonry/concrete worker, or surveyor.
