Trade & Industry
The construction industry is booming in the Pacific Northwest! This is visible by the number of cranes in urban areas as well as residential growth throughout our communities. Because of this development, there is a high demand for a skilled workforce in the construction and related industries.
The mission of the Construction Trades program at Sno-Isle TECH Skills Center is to prepare students to gain employment, apprenticeship, and/or acceptance to post-secondary education in the field of Construction Trades. Meanwhile, develop contributing members of our community and life-long learners who are ready to adapt to an ever-changing workforce and global marketplace.
