Many thanks for taking the time to consider our course.  In the design of this course we have addressed the issue of achieving a professional qualification without having to be an academic.  Our mentoring style is based on the concept of giving the correct information in a style that guides, supports and further equips construction supervisors and construction management learners.

The 'Supervising Safely' GAP Course - In Brief

Wise learning from the life stories and experience of practicing construction managers

This course is designed as a stand-alone distance learning course.  The candidate will be required to answer the review assessment learning quiz at the end of each section and to complete the final course review assessment. They will be graded only on the final review assessment.  A certificate will be awarded when they achieve the required 80% pass grade.

This course requires preferably that candidates have as a minimum, a three year construction supervisor history, are able to work in sequential manner and are able to set aside a minimum of half an hour daily to maximise the benefits of the course.  The course duration is estimated at 14 guided learning hours.  It is essential that each candidate gives their studies the time and respect they deserve.

The most important aspect of the course is that all candidates recognize themselves in the course content and are then able to implement the course content into their working lives and working environments. By doing this, they will turn theory into practice and practice into procedure and procedure into profitable and safe projects and sustainable careers with promotion possibilities.
