Take course work in math, science, business, and environmental science. English and communications classes are also helpful because the work involves regular communication with clients, construction crews, architects, and a host of other team members. Art, design, and computer science (including computer-aided design) classes also provide a solid foundation in this type of work. Learning Spanish will also be helpful since Spanish-speaking workers make up a large part of the construction workforce in certain areas of the country.
