Class / Program / Event Navigation
The field of construction project management is diverse and enormously complex. There are several major classifications of construction that differ uniquely from each other: residential, commercial building, heavy highway, utility, and industrial projects. Such projects involve much time and expense, and close management control of them is required if they are to be completed on time and within budget. A construction project manager is in charge of the overall planning and control of a project; this demands a command of many skills. The NCCER Construction Project Management Certification program is designed to provide you with the necessary knowledge of planning and design, cost estimating, contracts, specifications, scheduling, and the practical application of project management techniques necessary to be a construction project manager. In the first two classes students will be introduced to MS Office 365 for Construction to become familiar with the desktop tools and communication methods used throughout the class. This course of study is designed for those who are currently project managers to be more fully equipped for the day to day rigors of the professional project manager. For those who aspire to become project managers, this course of study will provide you with a solid foundation to begin your career as a project manager and to meet other industry professionals who can help you in achieving your goal. Program includes textbook, certification & wallet card, and a Microsoft Project trial subscription. Students should have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows and Excel and be able to work with files, save files, and perform spreadsheet functions.
