The Construction Management (CM) Program at Snow College offers students excellent, practical training in state-of-the-art residential and light commercial construction. Students develop or enhance their skills in areas such as cabinet making and millwork, rough and finish carpentry, architectural drafting (including Computer-aided drafting systems), computerized estimating and work scheduling. An advisory committee consisting of industry professionals is consulted regularly to enhance the program and keep its offerings current.

Students who enroll in this program must be in good mental and physical condition so they can perform required tasks. For some courses, a student must be able to lift 100 lbs., be able to climb ladders and scaffolding, and operate power equipment safely. Meeting these requirements will help students work towards a safe and rewarding career in the construction industry.

The two-year curriculum also includes management and business courses students need to become successful contractors, builders, carpenters, cabinetmakers, or subcontractors. In addition, the program offers a solid base for students who want to transfer into advance programs that lead to professional employment in the construction industry, such as industrial education, construction management, or architecture.
