    Choose the format that works the best for you or your crew:

    • The Online Hybrid course allows students to complete, at their own pace, reading assignments, online instruction, and workbook exercises during the week (approx. 3 - 4 hours weekly) and connect LIVE weekly with the instructor and other students in a "Live Learning Lab" to review the material for the week.

    • The In-Person, 2 Day Intensive class is just that, 2 full days of instruction at the AGC Colorado Training Center covering the same material that the Online Hybrid course covers.

    The text was written, and the course is taught by experienced commercial construction professionals and utilizes an on-line learning platform that organizes materials and content that is available two (2) years after you complete the course.

    The Fundamentals of Commercial Print Reading Course includes the current (eighth edition, 2023) Print Reading for Construction, Residential and Commercial textbook.
