During the Construction Equipment Technology program students learn all about driving big trucks and heavy machinery

Construction Equipment Technology is a dream come true for students who like machines! During the junior year, this program will teach students how to operate and maintain large equipment. Learn how to run equipment like backhoes, bulldozers, forklifts, tractors, skid loaders, excavators, and dump trucks.

Students also learn concrete and masonry skills, surveying, and mechanics. After being exposed to all of this, students enrolled in the program will choose to specialize in one or more of these areas: CDL, heavy equipment operation and surveying, or concrete and masonry. At the end of the two-year program, students will have career options as an excavation contractor, truck driver/owner, heavy equipment operator, masonry/concrete worker, or surveyor.
