Supervisory Training Program Students

Our students come from all over the country, all over the world and from multiple positions in the construction industry.  Bringing online classes with current information into the home is exciting and useful for the students.  There is no more convenient way to take college courses!

Students in this program must take charge of their own education.  Since there are no required class times, students must have the self-discipline to make sure they do the class work and satisfy weekly participation requirements. Class participation is  asynchronous and will occur in the form of bulletin board postings. That means that class discussions consists of comments posted by students at different times.  You may log on to find that a classmate has posed a question earlier in the day that you can answer.  Your answer may occur several hours or even days later.  This is how asynchronous discussion works.

These classes are for working adults who want to take charge of their future and their careers.
