As we do not know where you are located, a general answer is that most technical colleges around the country do these courses in either daytime modular blocks (6 weeks full time), or day release (one day per week), or night school classes (a term of classes).

A physical course dealing directly with a teacher and a class full of people is far better than on line courses as you get their physical experience knowledge.

In your case if you cannot find the time during the day if you are working, a night school class would be best.

Finally, as a works manager and/or foreman for decades, I can tell you it takes years of practical experience, not only of using materials and manpower, dealing with non understanding architects on what building services require in terms of access, space requirements and installations, and fighting budget cuts by accountants (costs V safety), but also how to handle the people working for you, as construction crew can be very physical and very verbal if things are not going smoothly. Hard skin and problem solving on the spot required.

You do need to work your way up the ranks, its not just critical path analysis LOL, you need to gain a lot more experience, start on small projects and work up. Good luck.

Did not realise it was spam, as wanted to say to the OP as you read on my last post that online learning is next to useless in the Construction industry, as practical learning and experience is more important than reading about it, as you have to learn to use specific words and actions to get motivation out of the workforce 

Being of a polite forum, I cannot reiterate these words here, but can tell you them on the construction site

It was a spammer, but I thought Bandi's post was useful so I felt bad about deleting it. :)

You can delete if you wish Rob, there are not that many who come to the website wanting careers in the Construction Industry.

I really wanted to be an astronaut for that out of this world experience, and more air miles
