I’ve been at the tech school for 4 years so far, 2 years for high school building construction and 2 years for industrial mechanics. They teach everything; nursing, culinary, auto, diesel, machining, welding, and even EMT/firefighting. Most of the computer and health related programs, have really big attendance rates and are full every year. The one that has really taken a hit is the machining and printing. The construction class is the closest thing to a woodshop, there’s probably $50,000 worth of Powermatic machines in there but he doesn’t teach a lot of woodworking, some but not a lot. He does build a bookcase every year and shows the guys how to use the jointer, planer, router, and the other tools you don’t normally use on a construction site.
