Undergraduate Certificate in Construction Management

Upskill to Advance Your Career in Construction Management

As many construction managers are entering retirement age, opportunities abound for skilled tradespeople to level-up into management roles. Providing knowledge and skillsets in people and project management, leadership, safety and regulations, and construction finance, this certificate is specifically designed to prepare construction tradespeople and workers who have completed an apprenticeship or have related construction experience for supervisory and management careers. The 100% online option makes it convenient to earn your certificate while balancing personal and professional commitments.

Take the next step in a growing field

The outlook for the construction sector is strong. Forecasts indicate that due to projected increases in population and economic growth, a growing demand exists for new buildings and roads, which will create new construction jobs. This program’s comprehensive, hands-on learning and portfolio preparation will leave you ready to meet the demands of this thriving industry.

Solid skills to equip you for success

This 18-credit certificate program includes in-depth discussions of applying motivational leadership, managing teams, recognizing and working within different organizational cultures, and leveraging effective negotiation and public speaking skills. It will also educate you on the details of successful project management, the concepts of accounting and finance as they apply to the construction industry, and the functions of the human resources department, including OSHA regulations, compliances, and the laws governing the construction industry.

Part of a series of stackable credentials

Not only is this online undergraduate certificate in Construction Management a valuable standalone credential, it can also serve as a stepping-stone to a WilmU bachelor’s degree, such as the B.S. in Applied Business. All 18 credits of this certificate can be applied to that bachelor’s degree program. In addition, construction workers who have completed a Delaware apprenticeship have an opportunity to receive up to 42 WilmU academic credits for their work experience. By combining those opportunities, you could find yourself halfway toward completion of a 120-credit bachelor’s degree program.

   42 credits for work experience/apprenticeship

+ 18 credits for completion of the Construction Management certificate

= 60 credits, ½ of a 120-credit Bachelor’s Degree
