The following Career Clusters are represented at ACCC:

Architecture and Construction

Architecture and construction courses can introduce students to the construction industry and related career fields in construction management, architecture, building construction inspection, and planning and design. Many students move quickly from basic construction training into estimating, and project management with high paying jobs.

The course standards listed below answer the question "What does a worker need to know and be able to do to contribute to the delivery of skills to the architecture and construction industry".

The following courses of study prepare students for nationally recognized industry credentials, which increase dramatically the chances of high paying careers. Students with industry credentials are always considered first by employers.

Teachers and administrators should find these standards useful as guides for providing quality curriculum in preparation for advanced studies. These standards also provide an avenue for articulation to postsecondary institutions.
