Construction Skills and Technology

Whether you’re looking for a new career path, to upskill, or to learn something new, Construction Skills & Technology is for you.


High School Equivalency

HCC's Construction Skills & Technology program was designed to help students on their path to a career in construction, regardless of their current educational level. If you’re looking to obtain your High School Equivalency credential to move forward on this career path, we can help!

HCC offers the High School Equivalency credential at no cost to you with a direct entry into the Construction Skills & Technology program. Offered online or in-person, the High School Equivalency credential is a nationally recognized certificate with a focus on specific knowledge measures and soft skills.


This program was developed to support Haywood County's economy and its residents to give people the skills they need to thrive in our region's construction industry. Through a Workforce Opportunity for Rural Communities (WORC) Initiative grant, HCC is able to provide scholarships to students entering the Construction Skills & Technology program to help offset tuition, course fees, and other expenses. We are here to help you on your new career journey.


Haywood Community College has worked and continues to work with numerous community partners to make this program a success. Through the WORC Initiative grant program, the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) are funding and supporting this program to the benefit of local employers, correctional facilities, and non-profits working within the community. HCC also collaborates with workforce assistance agencies and other local organizations to help educate our community about this new and growing program.
