Always in demand, Building and Property Maintenance involves investigating, troubleshooting, and preventing problems with buildings and landscaping.
A wide range of practices and techniques are required to keep homes, industrial facilities and residential buildings running smoothly. Through practical experiences and direct instruction, Building and Property Maintenance students learn the basics of carpentry, masonry, heating, plumbing, electrical, metal-working and landscaping.
Some schools offer State-Approved (Chapter-74) programs in Building and Property Maintenance. These programs provide all of the training required to begin entry-level work in the field. Other schools may offer a more condensed version of this training, which has been designed at the local level. This is known as Non-Chapter 74 or "Perkins-Only." Learn more about the difference between State-Approved and Local CTE programs.
