“The exercises are a good change of pace and more engaging. I enjoyed the concrete material most I think because I like it on a personal level more than some of the other subjects. Definitely will be able to use what I have learned here in my workplace in the future and already have throughout the course recognized things we studied at work and been able to relate and better understand what I see at work.”
“I think the variety of student background was valuable to us all. Students with less experience in the trades were able to gain insights from those with knowledge in specific areas. But just as importantly, those with trade experience were able to gain new perspectives and views not tainted by years of shop talk and industry dogma."
“I think the part that helped me understand the most is the modules with the teacher’s explanations and the samples you can do to see if you understand it. It explained better than the textbook at times.”
"This class really helped me understand the need for knowledge within law for any construction position. My goal is to become an APM/PM and I have a lot of friends in those positions. I always reached out to them to discuss a lot of these topics and they assured me that having this knowledge helps tremendously when working out in the project sites. So I am very grateful to have gained the knowledge within this course."
