The University of Alberta’s Construction Administration Certificate explores the planning, technical, financial, and legal aspects of the construction business to allow learners to develop and expand their managerial skills and advance their careers.
If you work in the construction industry and are seeking a competitive edge to further your career, the Construction Administration Certificate will greatly increase your ability to compete and succeed.
Courses in this program are accredited for the Gold Seal certification (Canadian Construction Association) and for the Blue Seal certificate (Alberta Advanced Education—Apprenticeship and Industry Training).
The University of Alberta Faculty of Extension now accepts Construction 101, CCDC Contracts 101, and several forthcoming ECA courses for transfer credit toward the U of A Construction Administration Certificate (CST)!
In a nutshell, the CST is a flexible, part-time program for individuals who are in, or transitioning into, construction management roles. The certificate includes a mix of core and elective courses, and typically takes from 1-3 years to complete.
If you take ECA's Construction 101 or CCDC Contracts 101 (or if you have done so in the last 5 years), then you're already on your way towards earning the certificate. Thanks, U of A!
