The <strong>Professional Certificate in Construction Supervision</strong> is an eight-course comprehensive certificate program created for people with a background in construction looking to advance their construction supervisory skills. Students must complete six core classes and two electives to earn the certificate in Construction Supervision with an emphasis in either Civil Sitework or Building. All classes should be completed within two years of starting the program.<br /><br />
Construction supervision requires a wide variety of skills including: people skills (effective leadership, accident prevention, and clear communication), technical skills (planning, scheduling, cost control, and productivity improvements), and management skills (project management, contract and document comprehension, and complex problem-solving).
The <strong>Professional Certificate in Construction Supervision</strong> is a variation on the popular AGC Supervisory Training Program with added material such as web tours, expanded topic studies, and group problem-solving sessions that address common industry issues.<br /><br />
This online program provides the flexibility to study anytime and anywhere, and students have an entire week to complete each assignment. (Students should dedicate about five hours per week, per class.) 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 />

This course is intended to teach the skills necessary for effective control of construction costs at the job site. Students will study construction costs and apply practices associated with cost awareness and production control to each element of the project. Cost control begins with the estimate and then continues through work and cost analysis, production scheduling, reporting, production control and ends with project evaluation. The information will be studied by solving common construction problems, the consideration of case studies and discussions of common cost control issues.
This course will focus on techniques, concepts, and procedures related to site preparation, excavation, backfill, compaction, underground utilities, road and bridge construction. Emphasis will be placed on solving real world issues. This is a paced, asynchronous online course. The course features a high level of student-to-student and student-to-teacher interaction.
