    The Building Construction Trades program is a two-year program in which students acquire entry-level skills in construction related trades. Students are exposed to various phases of residential and commercial construction through book study and hands-on work at jobsites.

    East Central College will grant advanced standing toward an associate’s degree to those students successfully completing the Building Construction Trades program at Four Rivers Career Center.
