what it would be like to work in the construction industry? Ever
wish you had the knowledge and advice of experts working in a specific
trade? Or perhaps you are still undecided about which field you
wanted to build a career — whether is is carpentry, electrical
wiring, HVAC, plumbing, or facilities maintenance.
Construction Academy is an integrated program that provides the
basic information you need to know to build a foundation of knowledge
in any of these craft areas. The first stepping stone in this series
is the Basic Principles for Construction,
which provides an introduction to the industry, as well as a review
of the basic skills and tools critical to success. The book takes
that concept even a step further by providing a "real world"
perspective through "Success Stories" — articles
featuring five individuals from across the nation working in various
trade areas. These individuals welcome you into their world, and
provide an "insiders" view at what day-to-day life is
like working in their field.
are the "Success Stories" of five additional individuals
who wish to share their stories, as an added bonus to the book.
