Construction Management Program Pilot Class Receives Awards

On Thursday, November 12th, the pilot construction management program at WVUP held its final class.  For 33 weeks, 15 students have faithfully attended the classes, meeting each Thursday for 4 hours at the Parkersburg campus.  On Thursday night, they received their completion certificates for West Virginia’s first construction management credit program (12 college credits).  In addition to earning their certificates, the students are now prepared to take the CAPM exam (Certified Associate in Project Management).

The program was developed by local contractors, industrial owners and laborers to take seasoned journeymen from various building trades, and train them in the skills of construction/project management, planning and scheduling.  This new skillset should prove to be a valuable asset to our local contractors that will translate into a better final product for their customers, all while providing upward opportunities for journeymen in the trades.
