Tuition-Free Construction Training Opportunity

FCC has been awarded a three-year federal grant (US Dept of Labor) to offer FREE admission to their Construction Management and Building Trades Institute. There are no income requirements.

This semester, all classes will be held in the evening.

Students can earn technical certificates for the following trades:

  • Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning
  • Welding
  • Carpentry
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing
  • Masonry

An alternative to the skilled-trade track is to apply institute classes to one of the following associate degrees:

  • Construction Management
  • Building Trades

If you’re interested in signing up for the fall, you’ll need to move fast. The HVAC course is already full, and the only other trade class being offered in the fall is Welding. The other trade classes will be offered in the spring.

Regardless of which track you choose, you’ll need to take Intro to Building Trades. There are still a few open slots available in this class, but (again) you’ll want to hurry.
