Construction’s High-Demand Skills
Construction careers provide great options for people who like to work with their hands and see results for their work. In Minnesota, the construction industry is projected to grow 8.9 percent by 2026.
Ridgewater College’s Role
Students have looked to Ridgewater College for decades to learn the skills needed to be successful in the construction industry. Employers also look to Ridgewater to fill their needs and to get the work done professionally. They frequently offer students opportunities to work in the field while attending college. We’re pleased to offer an Electrician program at our Hutchinson and Willmar campuses, as well as an Electrical Technology program at the Willmar campus. We’re also committed to expanding and adding new programs to meet the ever changing needs of our students and industry partners.
Coming Soon – Plumbing
Plumbing uses pipes, valves, plumbing fixtures, tanks, and other apparatuses to convey fluids. Waste removal and drinking water delivery are some of the most common uses for plumbing.
We’re in the process of developing a plumbing program that we anticipate will be available Fall 2022. Be one of the first to learn more about this opportunity by completing our interest form. We’ll update you with program specifics and let you know when applications will open once details are finalized.
Ridgewater College can get you started on a satisfying career that is high-demand, satisfying and financially rewarding. Build a solid future!
