What you'll learn in this construction training:

Skills Training for Building Supers, Part A: Certificate of Competency

This course will be conducted from the instructor's workshop. You will participate from home. A tool kit with a list of basic items is required for the class.

This short virtual hands-on program prepares individuals to work as building supers and handyman. Students will learn the essential skills needed to maintain a small residential building. While we are online, the instructor will demonstrate from his shop, with students participating at home.

Topics include plumbing, electrical, tiling, plaster/drywall, as well as essential communication skills for working with tenants and outside contractors. This lecture and hands-on-training class are designed to prepare you for work as an in-house super. Students will receive a certificate of completion that may be presented as evidence of having met the educational requirements to work as a competent building super.

Students will learn to repair toilets and faucets, install locks, wire outlets, plaster, set tile and perform the everyday tasks of a resident super. The class also covers NYC pest control requirements(bedbugs and rats) and the workings of heating systems. This is an extremely interactive class! Although HPD does not currently ask for the certificate of competency, it's our belief that supers must be very competent- and must have the people skills to work with residents and outside contractors.

Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Daniel! There is no test or certification. If the student passes the class, they will receive a certificate from NYCCT continuing Education. Hope this helps!
Question from ralph r.
Is this good for an experience maintenance man that will be running a building?
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Ralph! Part of the training deals with communicating with outside contractors and working with tenants. It's a series of classes. It starts off with the basic skills but it includes working with tenants and contractors. It's basically for a maintenance person who wants to get into the field and then somebody who wants to move up because the other 2 sections are geared to someone who wants to move to a management role.
