Many of the Construction Trades are facing labor shortages, creating opportunities to work while training. High quality local training programs are available in high school through Northwest Education Services (formerly TBAISD) Career Tech Center, and post-secondary at Northwestern Michigan College--in collaboration with and taught by experienced Trade professionals. Construction methods are increasingly incorporating technology in the materials and services offered, and are also transforming the design, materials and assembly processes for greater sustainability and consistency. The path as a Master in your chosen trade also remains an option for specialized and high-end projects with the higher pay to reflect your advanced skills.
