Welcome to the Weeknight Division I (GC, BC, RC) Trade Exam Prep Module Class. The purpose of each Module class is to prepare you for content that will be covered on the Contract Administration and Project Management exams. The Instructor will guide you through the content for each Module, reviewing important concepts and reference book sections that have traditionally been on previous exams. Weeknight Module classes are hosted Monday – Thursday from 6:30pm to 9:00pm (on-campus or via Zoom) and Friday (Zoom-Only) from 4:00pm to 6:30pm (note the early start time on Fridays).
NOTE: You will need the Module 10 Commercial Plan Set for this Module. Please find these drawings in your General Contractor Study Manual in Module 10 – page 10-38. If you would like a PDF copy of this plan set, please email your request to Contractor@GoldCoastSchools.com – include your student ID number in the email.
Here is a list of the Module Classes required for your Division I Exam Prep Program and the reference books to bring for each Module. Always bring your General Contractor Study Manual to each class.
