The demand for skilled workers in construction has never been higher, with some industry reports estimating that the construction industry will need to recruit over 200,000 skilled workers in the coming years. As such, possessing a recognised qualification is a great way to meet this growing industry demand.

Our new, online Site Management Certificate gives you all the tools and knowledge to gain a recognised professional qualification as well as the skills to manage people, activities and processes on construction sites.

Developed by a hugely experienced construction professional, the certificate course contains 3 units which will focus on the principles required to manage the quality of construction, as well as your ability to manage contractual and legal responsibilities. You will also learn best practice in health, safety and the environment.

In summary, the Site Management certificate course will put you on the path to management of all site-based staff employed by the company to ensure that the project is delivered within their contractual obligations.
