The  Construction Management Certificate covers all phases of management from site layout to finishing construction. Topics include bidding, contracts, specifications, estimating, print reading, and building codes.

TCL’s hands-on program emphasizes environmental resistant construction codes, giving you the skills you need now and for years to come. “Green” building techniques are highlighted, as outlined by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles.

TCL’s 22-credit-hour certificate program can be completed in as little as two semesters, or choose to take a course as it fits into your already busy schedule. Evening classes are offered. Plus, this program is eligible for the S.C. Wins Scholarship, which can pay up to $65 per credit hour.
