Overview

Accelerate your career in construction, engineering, architecture and real estate development.

In this series of six courses, you will learn about every major material and system in a building. You will learn the terminology and will develop a very strong understanding of how a building is built. This content is absolutely critical if you are involved in any way on a building construction project.

Our online commercial building construction fundamentals classes are thorough and detailed. We start at the very beginning. You will learn about the design and construction team and the order in which various construction disciplines build their respective building components.

These online construction fundamentals classes are Instructor-led and there is strong student engagement. There is no software required for this course.
