Light Construction meets science general education requirements

RAMAPO – Learn the basics of construction management in a new course offered this spring at Rockland Community College. The course, Light Construction (CMT 102), is suitable for those interested in a career in the field, people already in the building trades and those seeking a general-education science class.

Study construction methods, with an emphasis on the unique aspects of light construction. Learn construction management principles related to material properties, building science, structural design, estimating and scheduling. The instructor, Katherine Copp Brown, is a skilled guild carpenter and LEED accredited professional with many years of experience in construction management and green building technologies.

This practical, skill-based course will help prepare you for jobs in the growing field of project management and sustainable construction as construction managers, project managers, maintenance superintendents, office engineers, project engineers, solar and wind technicians, energy efficiency auditors and more. It is appropriate for students seeking RCC’s AAS degree in Green Building Maintenance & Management, but also for those interested in a unique gen-ed science class.

Light Construction class sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:15, making it convenient for contractors, workers in the building trades or homeowners interested in remodeling or expanding their homes. For more information, contact Katherine Copp Brown at
