Our Mission is to promote the profession of construction management and the use of qualified CMs on projects and programs.
CMAA was formed in 1982 to establish standards for managing construction projects.

CMAA is dedicated to career-long education and professional development, beginning with the Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT) program, through the Certified Construction Manager (CCM) credential for the most accomplished construction management practitioners, and beyond to continuing education for advanced professionals. Moreover, both CMAA and ABET are delivery-system neutral, advancing professionalism regardless of specific delivery methods.
