All phases of home construction are covered, including materials estimating, building science, building codes and tool maintenance.
Classes available days or evenings, and 50% of classroom activity is hands-on! The median wage is $24.40 per hour. Visit us at madisoncollege.edu (search construction and remodeling), and Facebook. Contact: Jen Voichick, 608-246-5213, JVoichick1@madisoncollege.edu
