Construction Manager-in-Training


The Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT) is a certificate program that helps aspiring CM professionals launch and develop a successful career into the construction management industry. The CMIT designation demonstrates competence in the practice of construction management early in an individual’s CM career. Individuals who have earned their CMIT designation are able to show employers and clients they are invested in the industry as well as in their own professional development.

The CMIT program is based on knowledge learned from CMAA’s Capstone Course: An Introduction to the CM Profession. The Capstone is designed to provide essential elements to the CM body of knowledge that may not have been obtained through formal academic training or experience. Included are specific topics in the areas of the role of the CM as a professional, CM as used with leading project delivery methods, CM contracts, legal and regulatory issues that impact CM practice, and risk allocation and management.
