New BCT Class Spring 2016 - Graphic Communication for Contractors.

Recommended to all BCT students. The course will run on three consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6-9:20pm.
For more than thirty years, our building construction program has been training men and women to enter the construction industry as skilled professionals who enter a specialized industry.
Building Construction Technology (BCT) is the only program of its kind in the Portland area offered by an accredited institution with degree options in three areas of study; hands-on construction skills, construction management, and design/build remodeling. Our Associates Degree in Building Construction Technology combines real hands-on training with excellent classroom instruction in the latest materials and methods, sustainable building practices, and fundamentals like construction mathematics and print reading skills. Our Construction Management degree prepares students for roles in management functions such as project management, estimating, and scheduling. Graduates move on to work for larger General Contractors, or apply their skills toward their own businesses. All of our CM classes are offered in the evening. Our Design/Build degree prepares students interested in designing, managing and constructing kitchen and bathroom renovations. Our program has strong affiliations with local contractors and national associations including the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA). Many of our graduates operate their own construction, remodeling and general contracting companies while others work for successful construction companies.
