Two students in the Building Construction Technology (BCT) program at Central Maine Community College, Audra Ziobro and Chandler Ellis, were awarded scholarships recently from the Maine Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE).
A resident of Arrowsic, Audra is an honors student in the BCT program jobsite track and works for Blaiklock Carpentry in Woolwich. Chandler lives in Vienna and has earned highest honors (President’s Honors) in the BCT program. He works for Maine Masonry in Scarborough.
The ASPE organization serves construction estimators by providing education, fellowship, and opportunity for professional development. The Maine chapter encourages a wide range of activities that provide learning experiences for estimators at all experience levels.
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 jobsite track provides students with alternating on-campus training with paid, on-the-job experience.
