Get a Construction Supervision Credential
If you want to move into supervision or project management, you can get the skills and credentials you need through Washtenaw Community College’s construction supervision program.
All of the classes are online—you never have to come to campus. They’re flexible and convenient, since you take them on your own schedule wherever there’s a computer with a high-speed Internet connection. Your instructors are professionals and industry leaders from around the country, and your classmates are often union brothers and sisters.
Earn a Certificate or Degree
By taking just five classes, you earn a certificate in construction supervision that sets you apart and opens the door to new opportunities and challenges.
Want to go even further? Adding just four to 10 general education classes earns you an associate degree in construction supervision. The number of general education classes you have to take depends on your specific apprenticeship, the type of associate degree you want, and whether you became a WCC student before the Fall 2010 Semester.
That degree is so close because WCC awards you non-traditional college credits for your apprenticeship experience. Those credits put you up to a third of the way—or even more—toward your associate degree.
The non-traditional credits signify that your apprenticeship translates into college-level work. After all, during your apprenticeship you attended classes, took tests, and did all of the other things that go into taking a college class. You’re more than ready to take the next step.
If you ever have a problem with an online class at WCC, review your Student Rights and Responsibilities described in Board of Trustees Policy 4095.
Build Your Skills
“Being out in the field, you don’t realize all of what goes into a construction project behind the scenes. I have enjoyed learning about construction contracts and how to work with supervisors and treat people. These are invaluable skills.”—Mitch Maher
