Project Manager Development Program

The Project Manager Development Program (PMDP) is for early-career project managers or those looking to move into such a role. It is a five-course program that covers the essentials of project management and provides a solid foundation for long-term career development. Each unit is around 16 hours of content, making the 5 course program around 80 hours of instruction. The curriculum is offered at many of AGC's chapters nationwide or can be brought in-house to construction firms and educational institutions in order to teach a new generation of project managers the essential skills to ensure project success.

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.
