In-Person CCM Build Up - San Antonio, Texas.

Tuesday, July 9 - Thursday, July 11
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Certified Construction Manager® (CCM®) credential recognizes construction management professionals who are expert leaders on capital projects and programs. 


CMAA’s CCM Build Up is a guided study experience to support your professional development. Scheduled over three full days, you will participate in group discussions while exploring all 10 domains on the CCM exam. This course is designed to help you understand the nuances of CMAA’s project/program management, leadership, and decision-making best practices, as well as provide a structured study outline to help you prepare for the CCM exam.  


Come prepared to discuss your questions and concerns with others studying to take the CCM exam. Study group sessions are led by subject matter experts, but this course is not intended to teach construction management techniques. Attendees should already have years of construction management experience before taking this course. 

Live instruction covers Professional Practice, Program & Project Management, Contract Administration, Time Management (with lab), Sustainability, Quality Management, Cost Management & Value Engineering, and Safety & Risk management.
