·        "Construction 101" for new managers
Construction Academy is for GCs, subs, vendors and other industry professionals that are fairly new to construction – project engineers, assistant PMs, new field engineers, etc. Current construction employees with changing areas of responsibility, and those who would benefit from having greater knowledge in certain areas of construction, should also attend. The classes help fill gaps between what is taught in college and what must be acquired on the job, and help new construction managers get up to speed more quickly and avoid pitfalls and costly mistakes.
