Excel and Thrive in Your Career With Our Construction Management Distance Learning Classes!
In this construction management distance learning course, students will learn the prime objective for all supervisors in construction: completing projects on time and within budget. The 206T Productivity and Cost Management STP Unit 5 online course is designed to teach the skills necessary to effectively control construction costs and time at the job site.
206T is one of many estimating and costing courses offered by Construction Experts Inc. This class specifically focuses on construction cost and applies principles and practices associated with cost awareness and production control to different elements of a project.
Cost control begins with the estimate then cost analysis, production scheduling, reporting, production control and ends with project evaluation.
The information will be studied by solving common construction problems, the consideration of case studies and discussion of common cost control issues. With our construction management distance learning platform, you will be able to learn and get the support you need for this course!
A self paced course can be started at any time. You must complete the course within 10 weeks but you can work through the course as quickly as you like.

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 should provide at least 3 contributions to the class discussions each week to gain the maximum points.
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.
