A construction worker normally works at a construction site. A construction worker usually does one of the jobs mentioned above. Because today’s construction companies are largely specialised, they perform tasks related to their speciality. Construction workers benefit from teamwork skills. Usually, a team consists of four employees due to the optimisation of transport costs. Sometimes, teams work together for weeks. A construction worker does their job with quality – this being the best calling card when finding clients.

The programme takes place at Särevere campus.
