Certified Construction Manager (CCM)

~ Successful projects start here ~

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.

The purpose of the CCM is to improve delivery of the built environment by identifying the construction managers best qualified by education and experience to deliver professional CM services at the highest level of quality and ethical conduct.  More than 3100 professionals now boast the designation “Certified Construction Manager.”

They know the value this distinction will bring to their careers and the confidence it inspires in their clients.  The Certified Construction Manager (CCM) is someone who has voluntarily met the prescribed criteria of the CCM program with regard to formal education, field experience and demonstrated capability and understanding of the CM body of knowledge.  Certified Construction Managers provide a professional service: they apply effective management techniques to the planning, design, and construction of a project from inception to completion for the purpose of controlling time, cost and quality.

Join a distinguished group of professionals and wear the symbol of leadership and accomplishment

CCMs have made a commitment to excellence in program/construction management, career advancement and an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.  The CCM Designation is highly regarded by peers, clients and other industry professionals as the international designation for professional PMs and CMs.
