An AGC Construction Learning Tool for the Emerging Project Manager
AGC’s Project Manager Development Program (PMDP) is a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated, and field-tested by and for contractors. The five-course program covers the essentials of project management for emerging project managers and provides a solid foundation for long-term career development.
PMDP participants are likely to have various titles depending on the kind of work they perform, the geographical location of their projects, and the size of their company. They may have titles such as assistant project manager, project manager, field engineer, project engineer, project administrator, etc. They may have experience as estimators, field personnel, project assistants, or office managers, and they may work in the heavy and highway sector, the commercial building sector, or in residential construction. They will most likely be early in their careers, have some post-high-school education, and less than two years of project-related experience.
Offered locally across the country, PMDP is a comprehensive five-course program geared specifically to the topics early-career project managers need.
PMDP is a nationally recognized training standard. Individuals who complete all five PMDP courses will receive an AGC Project Manager Development Program Certificate of Completion. Learn more.
In addition to taking PMDP courses at your local AGC Chapter PMDP courses can also be offered in-house at construction firms, at construction training schools and joint-apprenticeship training programs and educational institutions. Learn more about how to bring PMDP to you and your colleagues.
