Activities include classroom and lab experiences in many phases of the care & cleaning of buildings.

The emphasis in the lab is placed on the use of hand and power tools and the selection / use of appropriate supplies needed for care, repair and maintenance. Students will reinforce their math skills through the practical study of measurement units, ratios, area, and volume calculations. Scientific knowledge will be enhanced through the emphasis on environmental concerns and chemical and electrical safety instruction. Language skills will be strengthened through oral and written work intended to improve students’ abilities to communicate with supervisors, colleagues, and clients.
