Education programme for building and construction technology

This education programme opens for many vocations in the building and construction industry. You can, for example, become a construction worker and specialize in road work, construction work, asphalt laying or laying railway tracks. Other options include becoming a house painter, bricklayer, carpenter, plumber, scaffold builder, roofer or tinsmith.

Common to all these trades is that you should like hands-on work and have manual skills. You should also like working in a team, as many construction projects require close cooperation between many trade groups.
