Hi! The Blueprint and Project Management classes are offered by the school in a series of 5 classes: 1) Intro to Blueprint, 2) Advanced Construction Blueprint Reading, 3) Building Materials and Methods, 4) Cost Estimating and 5) Project Management for Construction.

Teacher could barely make it through the 3 hours each week. He always seemed exhauuated. Very disorganized and no cohesive lesson plan. While he was an expert in the subject he was not able to share his expertise in a way that would benefit the beginner construction management student. Nice guy but save yourself 12 hours and $300 and look for a better course.
