Build your education

The Construction Trades magnet program at Hudson’s Bay High School is designed to equip students with skills in planning, designing, building, and operating along the architecture, construction, and engineering, career pathways. The Construction Trades program offers coursework in framing, plumbing, foundations, basic electrical, and leads to capstone projects incorporating all these skills. This program is a State of Washington recognized Apprenticeship Preparation program and is aligned with local  Apprenticeship training programs. Students will earn certificates of completions with the Pacific Northwest Carpenters Institute, CPR/First Aid, OSHA 10, and some students will earn a forklift driving certification in spring of their senior year.

The knowledge gained from the Construction Trades program will allow students to enter the workforce directly or to continue their experience in a technical school, community college, or a four-year university.
