According to a recent article in UT San Diego, construction jobs are up 5.1 percent in San Diego County over the past year.
Taking this into account, SDSU’s College of Extended Studies will help individuals build toward the future of their construction careers by offering a wide variety of online certificate programs during the fall session.
These programs enable students to be better prepared to succeed at their chosen profession, learn from the experts in various fields of construction, and advance within their current trade or transition into a new career.
The online professional certificate programs include a new Civil Sitework curriculum, along with Construction Estimating, Construction Practices, and Construction Supervisory Series. These programs are all designed to provide practical on-the-job skills that students can use right away. Online fall courses begin Monday, Sept. 9, with the last day to register being Monday, Sept. 16.
The new Civil Sitework program focuses on skills needed by constructors interested in site development. Students will learn how to work with the earth, how to select, use, and budget for the best equipment needed to transform a plot of land into a developed site and how to utilize related construction documents. Excavation, roads, bridges, and underground utilities will also be covered.
