Ongoing education and training of personnel at all levels is vital to the continued success of any construction-related business. As workers advance in their careers and encounter new challenges in their particular management area, they may require new or additional skills in order to cope effectively with these challenges and excel at their work.
The construction industry places significant value on training, not only for immediate individual success but with a long-term goal of meeting the increasing shortage of qualified personnel. BCIT is offering a multi-level, Part-time Studies program designed specifically for people who:
- have industry experience and want to upgrade their skills,
- are active in some facet of the industry and wish to enhance their career potential, or
- wish to continue their ongoing education.
The Construction Supervision program consists of nine courses: Construction Documents and Contracts, Basic Project Management Skills, Technical Writing/Interpersonal Skills, Basic Construction Design Principles, Construction Materials and Assemblies, Computer Applications in Construction, Safety Legislation, Environmental Legislation, and Construction Estimating. These courses build on the previous ones by introducing more comprehensive and complex issues. Students receive a certificate upon successful completion of the program.
For information on the School of Construction and the Environment and a complete list of all programs, please view the Areas of Study page.
Other popular Part-time Studies technical programs are:
- Architectural & Building Engineering Technology – Certificate
- Building Construction Technology – Associate Certificate
- Building Design and Architectural CAD – Associate Certificate
- Construction Estimating – Certificate
