Online Courses and Tools Aim to Meet Construction Needs

Delmar, a provider of learning solutions for ongoing career development and education, announced online training for construction professionals, including more than 1,100 state licensing board-certified online courses and an online tool to assist with building codes.

The new courses are aimed specifically at construction professionals, including contractors, architects and engineers, and they contain information that can be used to review a topic, investigate a new specialty or gain in-depth knowledge in a broad spectrum of subject areas pertaining to the field. The courses are rated by degree of difficulty and meet state licensing board continuing education requirements. Users also will find 40 courses focused on green building, including courses on the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification and accreditation process.

In addition, Delmar now offers residential construction professionals access to Code Coach, a tool designed to assist with questions pertaining to building codes. Code Coach provides access to residential building codes as well as information to help clarify and interpret difficult code language using common construction terminology. Code Coach also offers images, figures, tables and popup notes to help users better understand critical aspects of the code.  

“Today, it is more important than ever for construction professionals to keep up with certifications and improve their credentials to ensure they remain competitive in the job market,” said Greg Clayton, vice president, Delmar. “Due to the difficult economy, many construction training facilities are offering fewer in-person seminars. Now, in addition to existing choices of materials in print and CD formats, our customers also have the option of convenient online access to board-certified training and online tools.”
