Through GRCC's School of Workforce Development, the Construction Trades program is geared toward people who want to begin or advance their careers in the construction industry and for contractors who want to train their existing employees.
Most of the Construction Trades programs are accredited through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER), using a nationally recognized competency-based curriculum taught by certified craft instructors.
Courses are offered using the traditional classroom instruction technique. Students are expected to have access to a computer and to know fundamental computer usage including e-mail, Internet, and Microsoft Word.
All programs can be used by employers to meet the requirements for Related Technical Instruction (RTI) for registered apprenticeship through the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship Training, Employer and Labor Services (OATELS).
Training is only offered in the electrical (ELEC) construction trade.
Our mission is to provide a quality learning experience for students pursuing a Department of Labor (DOL) apprenticeship credential in Electrical. This mission also includes partnering with the construction industry to provide continuing education courses, new programs and other educational needs.
