Building Construction Technology Student Earns Scholarship
August 7, 2013
Ann Bosse of Sabattus and Aaron Cox of Sebago were awarded scholarships recently from the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE). The scholarships were presented earlier this summer at the ASPE Chapter 37 Meeting held in Westbrook. Bosse and Cox, honor students in the Building Construction and Technology (BCT) program at Central Maine Community College, were noted to have demonstrated the aptitude and skills needed to excel in construction-related careers.
Along with Scott Sjoberg of Windham, Bosse was also awarded a scholarship from the Maine Building Officials and Inspectors Association to attend the 2013 Maine Code Conference held recently at Sebasco Harbor Resort. Sjoberg graduated from the BCT program with high honors in May.
The BCT program at CMCC prepares students for successful employment in construction-related fields. Through a combination of classroom study, mock-ups, and live projects, students obtain hands-on experience and become broadly familiar with methods, standards, and codes commonly associated with the construction industry. The program offers students the opportunity to earn a certificate or an associate in applied science degree. Many graduates of the program are employed with residential, light commercial, institutional, or heavy construction contractors; building materials suppliers; cabinet shops; or manufacturers of prefabricated modular units.
