Our construction programs are designed to provide students with job readiness skills in the construction trade through classroom and hands-on training completed in two 10-week phases: Phase I (general industry training) and Phase II (hands-on specialty training).

Upon completion of the training program, students will have gained marketable job readiness skills, and are ready to begin a career in the residential and commercial construction industry. Summit also helps students learn how to enter a trade union which makes workers eligible for additional wages, education and other employment benefits.
