About Course

Principles of Construction Management teaches students about the methods and procedures used to successfully manage construction projects from contract execution to close out and warranty work.  It demonstrates how successful contractors and subcontractors complete their scope of work on time and on budget.  This course also describes the role of support services, including accounting, payroll, purchasing, and so on in successfully managing construction projects.

This course is intended for individuals who have or wish to have, management responsibilities for construction projects, including project managers, superintendents, forepersons, coordinators, and others.  It is also useful for people who support construction management in roles such as accounting human resources, information technology, etc., and who want or need a better understanding of the business.  Finally, estimators and other persons who help to prepare bids and proposals should also take Principles of Construction Management to more fully understand the requirements for “project overhead”.  As noted, this course is intended for construction professionals working for both general contractors and subcontractors.
