    Hello, my name is Weston Hill.  I graduated from Petal High School in 1999.  I then went to Pearl River Community College, where I received a degree in Electronics Technology.  Throughout my life I have worked in many different aspects of the construction industry.  I am NCCER certified and very excited to be teaching Construction Technology at Petal High School.
    Construction Technology is an instructional program that prepares an individual for employment or continued education in the occupations of Carpentry, Electrical Wiring, Masonry, or Plumbing.  Construction Technology I is a basic course teaching fundamentals of safety, tools, math, and basic carpentry, electrical, masonry, and plumbing skills. 
    Construction Technology II is a continuation of Construction Technology I and provides advanced instruction and practical applications in the carpentry area.
    Construction Technology is a program that prepares students for employment or continued education in the occupations of carpentry. The curriculum framework for this program was developed in partnership with the Mississippi Construction Education Foundation (MCEF). MCEF is the accredited sponsor for the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).
    Students who study this curriculum using the Contren Learning Series materials under the supervision of an instructor who has been certified by the NCCER are eligible to be tested on each module. Students who successfully pass these tests may be certified to the NCCER by the instructor and will recieve documentation from NCCER that will be beneficial to put on resumes in their future.
