Course Categories

From first aid to fall prevention and more, we help you stay in compliance and make employee safety a priority. Convenient evening classes mean you and your employees don’t have to miss work. If you don’t want to fight the evening commute, we’ll even come to you!

Give yourself the professional edge you need to get—and stay—ahead. We offer a range of courses to help you manage your business, including financial and risk management, contracts, and sales and marketing strategies. Get QuickBooks and social media savvy or become a better leader with instruction from those who have seen it all.

Brush up on best practices, new or revised codes you need to know, and how to successfully navigate impactful regulations that affect your bottom line. Our hands-on courses, taught by area and national experts, are designed to enhance skills for successful on- or off-site productions, from pre-planning to implementation to evaluation.

How do we build housing to meet the needs of our aging population? What can we do to better plan for affordability and sustainability? Our design and architecture courses cover the topics that will define our region’s future—and that of our ever-evolving population. Want to be a part of the solution? It starts here.

It’s time to level up. Earn your next professional designation through MBAKS or NAHB. Programs are available for builders, remodelers, associates, and real estate and sales and marketing professionals. Certifications include Certified Aging in Place (CAPS), Certified Green Professional (CGP), Certified Graduate Remodeler (CGR), and Certified New Home Sales Professional (CSP).
