CMCI's goals

  • Improve professional practice through the establishment of professional development goals.
  • Identify the CM body of knowledge and skills necessary for the successful practice of construction management.
  • Recognize individuals who demonstrate knowledge and experience essential to the practice of professional construction management.

What is the Construction Manager in Training (CMIT) Program?

The CMIT is a certificate program that helps young professionals launch and develop a successful career into the construction management industry. After an individual successfully becomes a CMIT they will be given access to the CCM mentor directory, enabling CMITs to expand their networks and connect with leading industry professionals.


The CMIT designation demonstrates competence in the practice of construction management early in an individual’s career. Individuals who have earned their CMIT designation are showing employers and clients they are invested in the industry as well as in their own professional development. The CMIT program will help you develop as a construction manager and as a leader.

Construction Manager in Training (CMIT) Program

As a mentee, it will be your responsibility to understand the nature of your relationship with your mentor and manage your expectations accordingly. A mentor's responsibility is to challenge and advise their mentee. Although new career opportunities may stem from a mentorship, mentors are not expected or required to enhance their mentee's employability. 


While the CMIT program's mentors are all highly knowledgeable CM practitioners, they may not always have an answer to every question. In this case, it is the mentee's responsibility to communicate their challenge to their mentor, so that their mentor can help them find an answer.


Mentees will also be responsible for coming to each meeting with their mentor, fully prepared. The mentors are volunteering their time, so their time must always be respected.


Mentors are not required to have face-to-face interactions or create job opportunities for mentees.


Search the Mentor Registry to identify a potential mentor.
