Technical Classes
Build it better

Throughout the year, ABC's Education Committee develops and executes original seminars, workshops, and programs based on current needs within the industry. ABC's technical classes are led by seasoned professionals who are still working on jobsites here in Georgia. Learn best practices on a wide range of topics including concrete, building envelope, LEED certification, and logistics. 

Construction Academy
Over the course of nine sessions, Construction Academy attendees will receive an in-depth review of a project's lifecycle, from pre-construction to closeout. Seasoned professionals from ABC member companies will lead group discussions and activities, answering questions along the way. This program is excellent for your new hires who don't have much industry experience or employees who don't spend a lot of time on jobsites.

Registration
Construction Academy can be taken as a full program or individual class. Since the program has already begun, the 2017 Construction Academy is currently only available as individual classes. To register for individual classes, click on the desired class.
