The Construction Technology Program can help students take the first step toward a career in residential and light commercial construction. Here are a few qualities that effective construction managers have in common:
- Detail oriented: It’s important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.
- Careful: Being cautious helps prevent accidents or injury.
- Honest: Constructing buildings for others requires integrity and a good sense of ethics.
- Persistent: Your job requires focus and determination in the face of obstacles.
After earning my degree I received a pay increase and a promotion to a supervisor position. The instructors are superb, helpful, and are there with you every step of the way. Also, the student services representatives are courteous and understanding; they are there to answer any questions you may have. After each assignment I completed, the staff of Penn Foster always had encouraging statements that helped me to stay on course. Congrats to Penn Foster College on being the best and bringing the best out of me.

Having a degree will increase my chances of being put at the top of the promotion list. I suggest Penn Foster programs all of the time to my coworkers. I am in the military, and Penn Foster is a very military-friendly school. I got all of my materials shipped to me while I was overseas for deployment.

Will my Penn Foster College credits transfer to other schools?
Penn Foster College credits have been accepted for transfer into colleges across the country.

Also, the American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for many Penn Foster College courses. No form of accreditation guarantees that any learning institution will accept credits from any school as transfer credits. For more information on transferring credits, click here.
