Where to start
The simple answer is to take some construction-related courses at school or college, and find a job with a construction company. If you are seriously interested in a particular trade, take a look at your apprenticeship options. The majority of your construction skills are learned on the job, working with skilled tradespeople and supervisors - and you get paid while you learn!
