Training in construction typically covers different, specialized topics depending on the area of concentration. Find out about the requirements of these programs, and learn about career options, job growth and salary info for construction graduates.
Some professionals in the construction trades are required to have formal training. A construction manager needs a bachelor’s degree in construction management or civil engineering, while carpenters, plumbers and electricians must complete apprenticeships and obtain their license. Painters can learn through an apprenticeship, but certification is optional.
Formal training and education may be helpful for becoming a contractor, but not all employers require candidates to have it. Those with a degree in a relevant field, such as construction management or civil engineering, may earn advancement sooner than their non-degree competition. Many individuals who are interested in contracting learn the skills of the trade through hands-on training and working on a construction site. Many construction contractors gain their skills through apprenticeship programs sponsored by local companies, trade associations and trade unions.
Aspiring contractors do need to complete licensing courses, testing and continuing education, but the specifics vary by state and classification. Candidates typically need a minimum age of 18 years old. Topics that tests explore may include labor laws and regulations, project management and building codes.
