Total Credits Required for Certificate: 12*


*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 13 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:


Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. identify parties involved in contracts and the different types of contracts used in the construction industry;
  2. interpret construction specifications;
  3. analyze cost control throughout a construction project; and
  4. describe how the claim and change process affects financial settlement at the end of a construction project.
