After a brief orientation to American Workshop's "Introduction to Construction and Building Trades" (ICBT) program, this class will present the basic rules and regulations that help protect you and your co-workers from unnecessary risks on a typical construction site. We will cover many of the basic guidelines you must follow to ensure your safety and the safety of your co-workers. During the second part of this class, we will present the basic mathematical skills that you can expect to use on a construction site, including measuring and marking materials and calculating supplies.
*Please note: This class is a prerequisite to the full 16-day ICBT program, and must be completed before any other classes within the program.

- Registration for each class closes one week prior the start of the class, in order to provide our instructors enough time for planning and materials prep. Late registrations may be accepted at the discretion of American Workshop. Contact email@example.com if you would like to register less than one week prior to the start of class.
- Classes have a 48-hour cancellation policy. No refunds will be given for cancellations that occur less than 48 hours before the class starts. If a registered student does not show up, and does not give more than 48 hours notice, he/she will be billed for the day.
- For cancellations that occur more than 48 hours before the start of class, American Workshop will reschedule the student for free for the next available class. Refunds may be given at the discretion of American Workshop.
- If a student comes to class who has not previously registered, accommodations may be made but only at the instructor's discretion. If the instructor allows the student to attend, a $50 unregistered-student fee will apply for the day.
