Why Choose Construction Administration?

Construction Administration includes such classes as construction quantity estimating, construction administration, constructoin cost estimating, advanced construction scheduling, and prepares students for such positions as crew leader or field supervisor.

To be admitted to the Construction Administration certificate program, you must have college algebra, trigonometry, work experience or construction practices, general plan reading and computer applications or be able to pass a proficiency exam. An academic advisor can help you determine which certificate program best fits your education/experience background and meets your career goals.

It's possible to enroll in individual courses without committing to completing the entire program. However, since class size is limited, enrollment preference will be given to those students who intend to finish all courses and earn the certificate.
