The Professional Certificate in Construction Supervision at San Diego State University is an eight-course comprehensive certificate program created for people with a background in construction looking to advance their construction supervisory skills.


Students must complete six core classes and two electives to earn the certificate in Construction Supervision with an emphasis in either Civil Sitework or Building. All classes should be completed within two years of starting the program.

Key facts:

  • Construction supervision requires a wide variety of skills including: people skills (effective leadership, accident prevention, and clear communication), technical skills (planning, scheduling, cost control, and productivity improvements), and management skills (project management, contract and document comprehension, and complex problem-solving).
  • The Professional Certificate in Construction Supervision at San Diego State University is a variation on the popular AGC Supervisory Training Program with added material such as web tours, expanded topic studies, and group problem-solving sessions that address common industry issues.
