Why Choose Construction Administration?      

Construction Administration includes such classes as construction quantity estimating, construction administration, construction cost estimating, advanced construction scheduling.  It prepares students for positions related to construction operations.  It is often pursued by individuals working in the construction industry who do not have a degree in Construction Management or a closely-related field. 

It is 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.  Also, some earlier certificate courses are prerequisites to later courses.  

Certificate offered at the main campus in Big Rapids, MI and at Ferris Statewide - Grand Rapids.
