SDSU College of Extended Studies online certificate programs in construction start Sept. 12.
Online PR News – 06-September-2016 – San Diego, Calif. – Nearly 80 percent of states (39 of 50) saw their construction employment numbers increase from July 2015 to July 2016, according to the latest report from the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC).
“Depending on market segment and geography, many firms report they are having a hard time finding enough workers to keep pace with demand,” Stephen E. Sandherr, chief executive officer for the AGC, said in a news release.
Helping meet this increasing demand are SDSU College of Extended Studies online certificate programs in Civil Sitework, Construction Estimating, Construction Practices, Construction Project Management, and Construction Supervision. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or new to the industry, these programs help you write your own ticket for a successful career in construction.
The next session of online courses begin Sept. 12; the last day to register is Sept. 19. All programs are authorized by SDSU’s College of Engineering for professional development credit.
“Just two years ago I was a college student working as an entry-level intern, and now I’m in a management role as an assistant superintendent building new home communities,” said program graduate Mark Gonzalez of Pardee Homes San Diego. “Taking courses through SDSU’s Extended Studies program is one of the best educational investments I’ve made.”
Each course meets online for 10 weeks. Students should budget five to seven hours per week for each class.
“I work up to 60 hours per week, so it’s very convenient for me to take these courses online at home,” said former student Pete Spangler. “I don’t have to leave my children or my family and I’m not rushing to campus to try to make a class. I was able to connect with people across the country. They had some really good insight and I learned a lot of valuable information from them.”
Financial aid may be available to students through programs like the federal Workforce Investment Act and MyCAA for military spouses.
