Home improvement contractors coordinate and supervise the construction process from the conceptual development stage through final construction, making sure that the project gets completed on time and within budget. They also manage the selection of trade contractors to complete specific phases of the project. Are you a handy-person? You would enjoy home improvement if you like to work on and be in charge of residential construction and repair projects.
You will need to be able to read and follow plans, understand regulations, use a variety of tools, and have some math skills to be successful in home improvement. The more trades you are familiar with and the more skills you can offer, the more successful you can be in this field. You could be running your own business with your home improvement license.
Employment of home improvement contractors is projected to continue to increase faster than the average for all occupations during the 2016-26 decade.
Individuals that could be hired as construction managers can reach incomes up to about $105,000 in Maryland, and are also typically qualified to become self-employed home improvement or general contractors.
Students that successfully complete this course are prepared to sit for the Maryland Home Improvement License Examination. A secondary objective is to familiarize students with the home improvement contractor business.
Total approximate cost is $350. Total instructional hours are 12.
