    Hybrid Course

    This hybrid version of the course is structured for students to engage in reading assignments, online modules, and workbook exercises throughout the week, dedicating around 3-4 hours. Then, every Wednesday,  connect live with the instructor and fellow students, either in-person or virtually, to go over and discuss the material covered during the week.

    2-Day, In-Person Intensive Course

    The In-Person, 2 Day Intensive class is just that, 2 full days of instruction covering the same material that the Online Hybrid course covers. In the spring and fall intensive courses are offered in Windsor, Colorado Springs, and Denver.

    The course content is authored and delivered by seasoned professionals in commercial construction, leveraging an online learning platform that organizes materials and remains accessible for two years post-completion. The current (eighth edition, 2023) Print Reading for Construction, Residential and Commercial textbook is included with registration.
