Course Description:

Since 2005, the PM Certificate Program of the AGC San Diego Chapter has evolved into a standard of excellence.  Bright, determined, students “on the grow” are stimulated with contemporaneous training that reflects and augments their daily experiences.  A wide array of relevant topics are taught by industry professionals.  From pre-construction planning to project closeout, this course travels the natural path of construction projects to reinforce exceptional project management practices as well as the soft skills required to excel at a higher level.

Learning Objectives / Outcomes

  • To facilitate learning,  growth and confidence.
  • To equip every student with the ability to surpass expectations of peers and superiors as they excel in their chosen career path within the construction industry.

Our Philosophy:

  • Allowing the rapid changes within the construction industry to guide continued program development ensures that the program will never be static.
  • Utilizing industry professionals to teach from their experience and perspectives ensures that topics are presented with the greatest possible level of authority.
  • Engaging young and old, inexperienced and experienced in group dynamics ensures that participants will learn from fellow students as well as from the front of the room.
  • Exposure to a wide range of thought and methodology ensures the companies sending personnel that their companies will benefit from their people learning about the industry from a deep and wide knowledge base.
  • Being repeatedly placed in the shoes of the “other side” ensures a balance and respect necessary to engage in effective project management suited to this century.
