“UC Davis Extension's Construction Management Certificate Program fit my full-time work schedule and was accepted by the VA, enabling me to use my 911 GI Bill benefit. My VA Services Coordinator was engaged and secured each of my class selections throughout my tenure. The courses enhanced my ability to lead and manage small- and large-maintenance/construction projects. I enjoyed sharing and hearing real-world problems and solutions during the on-ground class meetings. This certificate will complete my résumé as I pursue a private sector position. I highly recommend this certificate program.”
