    Might want to contact your locale Building Department and find out the qualifications required in the area of your interest.

    You may not make it John, with such poor spelling in your posts. Try starting there...then move on to more directed training like a codes class at the college. Keep looking here for interesting posts. These guys can help quite abit. Pickup a series of code checks. Learn something about foundations (you did not mention which trades you were familiar with), framing, HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, familiarize yourself with all things noted in IRC (especially California if that is were you are going to seek employment). Take a class or two regarding Architecture and drafting, perhaps plan reading. Interview some good project managers or superintendents. Better yet, get a job as a superintendent then move to project manager. After several years you should be pretty well prepared to start learning something.
