How to Bring PDMP to You

AGC's Project Manger Development Program is designed for local delivery—whether at a local AGC Chapter, within your construction firm, or at your local community college or joint-apprenticeship training program.

AGC of America, along with industry experts, develops instructor and participant resources for the delivery of this training—ensuring the same quality program no matter where it is offered across the country.

Where do I start?

If You’re at a Construction Firm

  1. See if the training is offered locally.

    PMDP may already be available at an AGC Chapter near you. View a listing of currently scheduled courses or contact your local AGC Chapter to learn more.

  2. If you’re thinking about hosting the training internally, purchase Instructor's Guides for the modules you're interested in.

    Offered at the same price as the Participant's Manual, the Instructor's Guides provide a detailed look at the contents of each course, providing the instructor with lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, participant’s material, discussion guides and answers to worksheets and case studies.

    Course manuals can be purchased through the AGC Store. View the course descriptions to learn more about what is in each module.

  3. Identify an instructor within your company or contact AGC for recommendations.

    Many PMDP instructors are seasoned project managers or individuals that have moved past that role, qualified human resource directors, or others within your firm.

  4. Identify participants.

    We suggest that you have at least 10-15 individuals that you wish to take each course (or the entire five course program) to encourage maximum participation. Participants should be early-career project managers or those looking to move into such a role.

  5. Purchase your books from the AGC Store or over the phone at 1-800-242-1767.

    Both Participant’s Manuals and Instructor’s Guides retail at $155 per book and are available to AGC members for $125 per book.

  6. Host your course!

    AGC provides certificate templates, evaluation forms (found in the back of each manual) and other resources you need on the course date.

    Following the course just send us the original Participant’s Registration and Course Evaluation forms out of the back of the Participant’s Manual and we'll keep a record of all your participants to issue a overall program completion certificate.

Not seeing the right solution for you? Have questions?

There are several other creative options to access training or to launch PMDP courses at your location. Contact AGC at curriculum@agc.org to learn more about ways that we can customize the program to fit your company, put you in contact with instructors, and help you host courses.

If You’re at an Educational Institution

  1. Consider contacting your local AGC Chapter

    Several different things may come of this—PMDP may already be available at an AGC Chapter near you or this may open up a way to partner with the local contractor community and reach more individuals. View a listing of currently scheduled courses to see where PMDP is being held or contact your local AGC Chapter to learn more.

  2. Purchase Instructor's Guides for the modules you're interested in offering.

    Offered at the same price as the Participant's Manual, the Instructor's Guides provide a detailed look at the contents of each course, providing the instructor with lesson plans, PowerPoint presentations, participant’s material, discussion guides and answers to worksheets and case studies.

    Many PMDP instructors are seasoned project managers or individuals that have moved past that role, including qualified human resource directors, or faculty with field experience.

  4. Schedule the courses

    Some things to keep in mind:

    Many individuals like the idea that they can plan or register the entire program to earn the certificate of program completion from AGC of America.

    Consider offering credit toward a degree or certificate program. Contact AGC at curriculum@agc.org to help figure out what is right for you.
