Building Construction Trades
Designed for building and construction trades journey-persons who have completed a formal apprenticeship program registered with the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, U.S. Department of Labor or a bona-fide program recognized by HFC. Formal classroom-related instruction associated with the sponsored apprenticeship program will be evaluated and up to 40 hours of college credit may be granted for equivalent courses available through the College. Students seeking the degree must then complete an additional 20 credits at HFC including the general education requirements of the College. One typical area of concentration taken by students is Construction Management.
All students receiving an Associate Degree are required to meet Degree-Specific Requirements AND General Education Requirements. Courses listed in the Required Core and/or Required Support Courses may also be used to fulfill Degree-Specific and General Education Requirements. Developmental courses (those numbered below 100) cannot be used to fulfill these requirements.
