A certificate in virtual construction from Pierce College will provide students with experience creating 3-D digital models of facilities. These models enable construction teams to identify potential structural issues before a project even breaks ground, saving time and money.
“These 3-D models help teams see how a building will actually come together,” said Program Coordinator Dolores Kelley. “This is important, because regardless of how experienced a construction team is, there is always something that can be missed throughout the course of building a project.”
This one-year certificate program is geared to adult learners who are already working in construction. The five required courses in the program are scheduled at night during the week to accommodate working students.
An advisory committee comprised of local construction industry experts helped design the Virtual Construction Certificate Program to ensure skills learned in class will help students be successful in the field.
Students in the program must have prior experience in construction.
“Virtual construction is the future of our industry,” Kelley said. “This certificate program could help take your career to the next level.”
