The Construction Management Programme (CMP)

The CMP is a middle management programme for engineers and other practitioners who have the potential for advancement into corporate management. Due to dramatic changes and degree of uncertainty in the business environment it is also a most relevant (if not essential) professional development programme.
The relevance of the programme to the industry and the country is one of the primary reasons why senior managers and other professionals enrol in the programme.
In the context of the CMP, the construction sector includes client and owner organizations, consultants, designers, project managers and contractors.
The CMP has an international reputation for excellence, established over many years. It was first presented in 1976 and has been in constant demand despite periodic lower levels of investment in construction and reduction in capacity this past decade.
The CMP is presented annually (or bi-annually) over a period of four weeks using the total emersion learning methodology to expose delegates to the very latest theories, tools and techniques in all aspects of business management in the construction sector.
