Construction Trades

Your exciting construction trades career begins here.

Turn Your Construction Trades Skills into a Rewarding Future

Ready to spark an exciting career in the construction trades industry? A residential or commercial electrician can work indoors and outdoors, and most travel to different worksites, local or long distance. Jobs in these industries are in high demand, with both full-time and part-time jobs available. Residential carpentry is one of the most versatile occupations too. Carpenters can work both full-time and part-time, in office buildings, homes, commercial businesses and more. HVAC technicians work mostly in homes, schools, hospitals, offices, and factories to help control the temperature and air quality in buildings.

With KTI’s construction trades programs, you’ll train for in-depth skills related to electrical safety, residential and industrial wiring systems, carpentry, HVAC, and construction. You could be at the forefront of innovation in just 10 to 18 months!


Which Program is Right for You?

Entry-level construction trades jobs require a strong skill set and hands-on foundation, generally obtained through a diploma program. The additional courses and experience of a specialized associate degree can add to your marketability. KTI’s specialized degree programs are ideal if you hope to expand your trades experience with more certifications.

  • Electrician: Lighting & Installation: Ready to start working faster? Then our electrician diploma program is a good option. You’ll learn essential skills to perform electrical work immediately.
  • Electrician: Residential & Commercial: The specialized electrician degree program will teach you how the industry works and prepare you to enter a number of different electrical specialties. With a specialized degree, you can be prepared for a number of certifications and careers as a commercial and residential electrician.
  • HVAC: Learn to install, maintain, and repair heating, cooling, and refrigeration systems in our HVAC diploma program. In just 10 months, you could be ready to work as an HVAC technician, installer, duct mechanic, and more.
  • HVAC/R: Our AST degree program is an extension of our popular HVAC diploma program. You’ll gain a deeper knowledge of the trade, plus increase your marketability with a specialized degree vs. a diploma. You’ll also have the opportunity to obtain the Environmental Protection Agency 608 universal certification. Getting this certification will certify you as a Type I, Type II, and Type III technician and enable you to work as an HVAC/R technician with refrigerant at all pressures and appliances.
  • Masonry: Prep for jobs including mason tender, brick mason, and more. Learn skills like reading masonry blue prints, site preparation and layout, veneer finishes, footings and foundations, and more.
