Certificate in Construction ASS300

For anyone who wants to broaden their skills and knowledge of construction from tradesmen and labourers to engineers and developers.

Construction is a broad industry involving aspects of the built environment from building construction to landscaping and land development.

Construction is and always has been a major employer; and despite changes in the way things are done (eg. increasing mechanisation), it is likely to always be a major part of the fabric of civilisation.

With Carpentry and Project management as core modules in this course, everyone who completes the certificate will have a fundamental understanding of how lots of different things are built, and how the building projects are managed; and as such, a foundation and key skills that are of value in any construction workplace. Beyond that, you have the opportunity to expand and diversify your studies through four electives. By allowing you to choose the electives you take, we are allowing each graduate an opportunity to have a different skills mix to other graduates. Being different is particularly important in today's world. By being different, you are able to stand out in the crowd, get noticed, and secure work that you might otherwise not have been able to get.

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
