Westminster's Advanced Construction Management Training certificate program (APMC) uses a project-based approach where students learn and master skills though real-world business applications while receiving mentoring from Westminster instructors who are certified project and construction management experts. Students are mentored toward mastery of concept and execution by expert faculty-coaches while engaging in projects related to their real work environment. The program curriculum is tied to the industry recognized certificates students need to perform at a highly proficient level.

Those seeking this credential must have passed the NACP Basic Construction Management Professional (BCMP) exam and have a minimum of two years of experience managing construction teams. They must then participate in a series of two practical exams (one in-person exam and one online exam) and achieve a combined average score of 3.3 (out of a possible 5.0) on their final assessment report.

During the Advanced Construction Management Training Certificate students will participate in a Construction Management Simulation Course—this three-day (24 hours) workshop allows students to apply construction management principles to a simulated project. Students receive rigorous, repeated practice of advanced construction management principles.

Student will then participate in a ACMP Assessment—this advanced assessment, (90 hours), is composed of a self-assessment, a scenario-based assessment, and a supervisor's assessment. A participant's performance in each area is fed into an algorithm that provides a score for the participant in twelve construction management areas. The algorithm also provides a comprehensive score for the participant. Students who successfully complete the certificate will receive:

  • ACMP Credential — this credential is awarded by the NACP. The required pass rate for this assessment is a comprehensive score above 3.3, with all area scores above 3.0.
  • ACMC Program Certificate — this certificate is awarded by Westminster College.
