Learn New Skills and Knowledge to Enter the Construction Industry!
Our online Diploma in Construction has been specifically designed to give you a solid foundation in construction knowledge and skills. It is suitable for tradesmen, labours, engineers, developers and anyone wanting to enter the construction industry.
As an industry, construction is very broad-based. It includes all facets of building techniques from landscaping, land development, building cities and towns, and skyscrapers. It also extends to houses, hospitals, schools, bridges, energy plants, railways, dams, and more.
There are four essential categories within the construction industry: residential, commercial, industrial, and infrastructure.
This Diploma in Construction requires the completion of 6 modules comprising 3 Core modules and 3 Elective modules.
The three (3) Core modules (compulsory) are Carpentry, Masonry, and Project Management. These modules provide a fundamental understanding of how carpentry and masonry contribute to the construction process, and how building projects are managed to completion.
You then choose a further 3 courses from the 11 Elective courses listed under the lesson section. The option to choose any combination of elective courses, in addition to the core modules, means that as a graduate student, you will have acquired a distinct set of skills and knowledge, that other students from other institutions, may not have.
These skill-sets are a valuable commodity in helping you stand out to prospective employers.
The construction industry is very diverse, and because of this diversity job opportunities abound. The construction industry will always remain the backbone and driving force of any economy.
Please Note: Your first course and subsequent courses may be studied from either the Core or Elective section. All modules can be completed in any order. Each module is 100 hours duration and is a course in its own right.
