This session of the Professional CM Course is hosted by the Central Pennsylvania Chapter.
To safeguard the health and safety of our members, CMAA National and the Central Pennsylvania Chapter will be offering this course virtually.
Based on CMAA’s Body of Knowledge, the Virtual Professional CM (PCM) Course is a comprehensive, live, instructor-led course offered over five half-day sessions. 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.
To get the most out of your experience and to assist the instructors with understanding your needs, please be prepared to use your webcam and actively participate in questions, chat, and polling. Instruction will begin at 8:00 a.m., however, class may end earlier than 1:00 p.m. on some days. An agenda will be provided at the start of the course.
Live instruction covers professional practice, program & project management, contract administration, time management (with lab), quality management, cost management & value engineering, and safety & risk management. BIM and sustainability are available as on-demand sessions through CMAA’s online learning platform. Students are encouraged to view the BIM and sustainability modules prior to the course as instructors will be able to address questions on these modules during the live portion of the course.
*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.
