Certification

The Certified Construction Manager (CCM) is the “gold standard” in personnel credentials for the Construction Management profession. It is the only CM certification accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under the International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 17024 standard.

CCM is increasingly specified by leading owners in their construction RFPs. A growing number of organizations have also adopted a “Culture of Certification,” in which it is assumed, enterprise-wide, that the best CMs will be Certified CMs, and the organization supports its professionals in pursuing the CCM and provides financial and other recognition for achieving this high distinction.

CCM validates the competencies of those overseeing the Commonwealth’s capital improvement projects and programs. It’s an investment in those who can affect efficient, effective, and responsive delivery. CCM is helping us to manage our projects better and improve the competencies of our staff. It is giving them an opportunity to achieve personally, and to achieve results on projects every day.
