Gainesville, Fla. — Register two or more attendees and get 10% off tuition. NCCER will host the Project Supervision and Project Management Academies on Mar. 13-19, 2010, at Clemson University, Clemson, S.C. 

The academies target new construction supervisors and project managers and consist of 60-hour intense training sessions that provide powerful sessions of networking, lectures, case studies, and team-building activities to reinforce the skills learned. The academies are led by quality instructors with extensive construction experience and held simultaneously at the outdoor laboratory on Lake Hartwell at Clemson University. The secluded and rustic cabin setting provides the ideal learning environment and fosters a lasting professional bond among participants. 

“The quality and real-world knowledge of the instructors was better than any other class or academy that I have attended,” said Richard Nickel, vice president of Carolina Bridge Co. Inc., Orangeburg, S.C. “There was continuous learning and bonding throughout the entire week, even outside of the classroom. We plan to send all of our company project managers and superintendents.”

Both the Project Supervision and Project Management Academy include pertinent topics and problem solving skills to address day-to-day issues confronted on a construction project. Topics include leadership, time management, scheduling, documentation, and cost control. A complete list of objectives for each academy can be found at the NCCER Web site

Academy tuition is $2795 and includes lodging, all meals, course materials, transportation, and activities. Registrations are available online or call NCCER customer service for more information at 888.622.3720.  

All participants can earn industry credentials from the NCCER National Registry and continuing education units upon completion of the academy. In addition, participants can earn credit towards a Master’s Degree in Construction Science and management at Clemson through the Project Management Academy.
