How the CMIT program works
The CMIT program has two phases: The Capstone Assessment and the Mentor-Protégé Relationship.
The Capstone Assessment component of the program lays the foundation of knowledge and instills an understanding of the history of construction management practices and procedures. Candidates are required to read the Capstone publication and complete the online assessment. When a passing grade of 80% is achieved, candidates earn the CMIT designation and are enrolled in the CMIT Program.
The Mentor-Protégé Relationship is an on-going and key aspect of the CMIT program. Mentors provide CMITs guidance and support to ensure CMITs are on the right track to obtain the project experience needed to qualify for CCM certification. Mentors and protégés create and manage development plans. As a CMIT, you may choose any CCM you currently work with, or you can access CMAA’s growing roster of CCM’s who have expressed interest in mentoring. To guide this process, CMAA provides mentors and protégés with the CMIT Mentor Program Guide, which can be found here: http://cmaanet.org/files/shared/Mentor_Guide.pdf. The mentor directory is available here: http://cmaanet.org/certification/cmit/mentor-list/mentor-directory
