Project Management Program Puts Young Workers in Pipeline
The California Construction College at San Jose City College has launched an accredited online program that can lead to a bachelor’s degree in construction management.
The pilot program that started March 7 in Silicon Valley and Providence, R.I, is about to go national this spring.
Silicon Valley construction contractors say the course will be a valuable tool in recruiting younger workers. The average age of workers in some of the trades can be well into middle age.
Swinerton's own Jennifer Gallegos, an administrative assistant, enrolled in the new program as a pathway to project management.
