The <strong>Certificate in Construction Supervision</strong> is a ten-course comprehensive certificate program created for people with a background in construction looking to advance their construction supervisory skills. All classes should be completed within two years of starting the program.<br /><br />
Construction supervision requires a wide variety of skills that include interacting with people (effective leadership, accident prevention, and communication skills), technical skills (planning, scheduling, cost control, and productivity improvement), and management skills (project management, contract and document comprehension, and complex problem solving).
The <strong>Certificate in Construction Supervision</strong> is a variation on the popular <abbr title="Associated General Contractors">AGC</abbr> Supervisory Training Program with added material such as web tours, expanded topic studies, and group problem-solving sessions that address common industry issues. Students who complete the certificate will also be eligible for the AGC certificate of completion.<br /><br />
This online program provides the flexibility to study at anytime and anywhere (students should dedicate about five hours per week, per class) - and students have an entire week to complete each assignment. Courses do not need to be taken in any particular order and there are no prerequisites. Students should self-assess whether they have the construction background necessary for this program.<br /><br />
If a ten-course certificate is impractical at this time, consider one of these certificates:<br /><br />
Successful completion of three classes earns a certificate in <strong>On-site Supervision, Project Management</strong>, or <strong>Supervisory Technologies.</strong><br /><br />
<li>Required classes for the <strong>Certificate in On-site Supervision</strong>: <em>Leadership and Motivation, Oral and Written Communications,</em> and <em>Accident Prevention and Loss Control.</em></li>
<li>Required classes for the <strong>Certificate in Project Management</strong>: <em>Contract Documents and Construction Law, Problem-solving and Decision-making,</em> and <em>Project Management for Construction Supervisors.</em></li>
<li>Required classes for the <strong>Certificate in Supervisory Technologies</strong>: <em>Planning and Scheduling, Cost Awareness and Production Control,</em> and <em>Construction Productivity Improvement.</em> </li>
Successful completion of all nine classes (and a tenth class, ENGR 042 General and Specialty Contractor Dynamics) earns a certificate in <strong>Construction Supervision.</strong> Students will be issued an Associated General Contractors (ACG) certificated of completion for each course successfully completed. Students who successfully complete the <strong>Certificate in Construction Supervision</strong> will also receive a certificate of recognition from the AGC.<br /><br />
