Testimonials

“Since I took this class, I have been able to work with the same tools that construction professionals use and I’ve already been able to do some work for a construction company. These experiences will give me a head start when I attend Columbus State next year.”
- Eric Ullom

"DACC's Construction Program is a great way to prepare for your future. The projects we work on are the same things we'll be doing once we graduate. I've even found employment through the work I've done in this program, so I'm already a step ahead of others who want to get a job in this field."
- Tim Bines

"Mr. Scott is the best teacher. He makes class a lot of fun and you'll get some really great experiences, both in class and at job sites."
- Dylan Caldwell

"There's nothing like going to school every day and working on something you love. We have a great time in our lab, but we also learn five times as much about our career field as we would in a traditional classroom setting. DACC has really helped me prepare for my career with hands on experiences and certifications."
