A balance of practical skills and management training prepares successful A.S. degree candidates for careers in contractors’ or architects’ offices, building construction administration, or self-employment in the construction industry. The program is very flexible, allowing the student to choose electives that are most suited to their career goals. Some of the courses satisfy the requirement of the Construction Industry License Board for Continuing Education Units. Classes are conveniently offered days, evenings and weekends.

Major courses are taught on the Clearwater Campus.
