Our History

In March 1985, CITC held its first class in carpentry with 26 students and 15 students on the waiting list. From that humble beginning, CITC has grown into a state-licensed, nationally accredited, construction training program for beginning and advanced construction professionals.

CITC’s training programs currently serve more than 450 apprenticeship and classroom training students; 2,500 continuing education students; and over 150 students take part in our commercial, industrial, pipeline, and supervisory skills assessments and performance verifications.
