Register for 202 Oral and Written Communication, Unit 2, to Pursue Your Construction Supervisor Certificate & Communicate Effectively With Your Crew!
202 Oral and Written Communication – Both oral and written communication deeply impact the people you work with and work life situations, which is why this course is included in our construction supervisor certificate programs.
Communication is multi-faceted. It includes nonverbal communication, body language, listening, inflection, and written communication. Without quality skills in each of these categories you are putting yourself and your career at a severe disadvantage.
Excellent supervisors are able to delegate tasks and instruct people in various situations, no matter what is thrown at them. Please keep this in mind as you continue on your path toward completing your construction supervisor certificate.

CLASS ORGANIZATION & GRADING
Each week you will have online class discussions (15 points) and a quiz (10 points). It is important that the student keeps up with this construction superintendent training course and not fall behind.
Course modules will be made available to students on Sunday of each week. Class work must be completed before the following Monday. Students will not be able to work ahead of the class although reading assignments will be made available in advance. Actual dates that modules will become available will be posted in advance on the course calendar.
Graded assignments will consist of one quiz for each module and participation in at least two class discussions. Students learn more and learn better when they discuss the topic at hand. For that reason, I consider the regular weekly discussions to be even more important than the weekly quizzes.
Grades will be posted on a weekly basis. You will have full access to your grade sheet so you will be able to keep track of how you are doing at all times.
Your overall grade in the course will be determined by the total number of points you have accumulated on quizzes and assignments.
