About the Program

Embry-Riddle's Construction Risk Management Certificate Program uniquely provides comprehensive training in risk management/safety. It is a cost-effective and time-efficient source of comprehensive education for construction, safety, and insurance professionals. These courses were developed and taught by experts who have practiced their craft in the construction and insurance industries for decades.

Many of the people who are important in ensuring proper risk management are nowhere near the job site. Yet, they still need a thorough understanding of the most costly and unpredictable risks that can occur. This certificate program is specifically designed to support the professional development and education of individuals working in fields such as: insurance professionals, risk managers, safety managers, accounting and finance managers, and construction managers.

Upon completion of the program, you will have an overall understanding of the construction industry and prevalent interdisciplinary risks. You will also be able to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of safety risk management issues and topics.

The robust course curriculum for the Construction Risk Management certificate program includes topics such as:

  • Why construction workers are injured at higher rates than other industries.
  • How to assess hazards and risk on all types of construction sites.
  • How to develop a risk and safety program for your organization which actually prevents losses.
  • Emerging issues in construction including: Green Construction, Drones in Construction, Disaster Recovery and Hispanic Workers.
  • Codes, Regulations and Standards.
  • The “4 Deadly” Hazards which must be eliminated on all construction sites.
  • Liability exposures that can put a contractor out of business.
