Historic Preservation Construction Certificate
HWF & Cape Fear Community College Partner to Preserve Built History.
Offered through the Workforce Training program at CFCC, the Historic Preservation Construction program teaches students how to properly renovate old homes and commercial buildings, using appropriate techniques that suit the needs of historic structures. After taking three 96-hour courses, students will earn a certification in Historic Preservation Construction, endorsed by the Historic Wilmington Foundation.
Wilmington’s built history makes this city extraordinary. Training more contractors who understand how to work with old buildings helps to strengthen our local job market and ensure a strong future for our historic homes and businesses.
The Historic Preservation Construction program is geared toward contractors and those with a background in construction. Given Wilmington’s abundance of old buildings and a shortage of contractors to help repair and maintain them, Historic Preservation Construction is a win-win for the community.
The preservation of our historic buildings is so important. Helping our citizens learn to restore and maintain these structures is vital to Wilmington’s economy and to our community’s story. CFCC is proud to partner with Historic Wilmington Foundation to provide this unique opportunity to our students.
