Construction Supervision (APCNSP)

Associate in Applied Science Degree

Program is also available online.


This program gives apprentice and journey-level members of the articulated union building trade apprenticeship programs the opportunity to apply their apprenticeship training and trade-related experience toward an associate's degree in Construction Supervision. In addition to the courses in Construction Supervision, students will complete general education courses and receive nontraditional credit for their work experience and apprenticeship.

Students must complete an apprenticeship program concentration in plumbing, pipefitting, HVAC, sprinkler fitting, ironworking, bricklaying, tile setting or other approved union building trade. Upon completion of this, students should apply for non-traditional credit evaluation of their apprenticeship experiences to meet the apprentice program concentration requirement (19-26 credits).
