Based on CMAA’s Body of Knowledge, the Online Professional CM (PCM) Course is a comprehensive, self-paced, eLearning course offered over 18 days. This valuable learning opportunity focuses on construction management core competencies and will benefit those wanting sound basic construction management skills, as well as more experienced professionals seeking a refresher or continuing education. It is also recommended by CMAA as effective preparation* for the Certified Construction Manager (CCM) exam.

Upon request, experts are available for Instructor Office Hours during the course period to answer student questions and provide their perspective on the material.
Instruction covers professional practice, program & project management, contract administration, time management (with lab), quality management, cost management & value engineering, safety & risk management, BIM, and sustainability.
*There are no required materials or courses to prepare for the CCM exam and participation in this course does not guarantee a passing exam score. Please review the CCM Applicant Handbook (available under CCM Applicant Resources) for additional information.
