    Event Description:

    AGC’s Project Manager Development Program (PMDP) is a construction-specific training curriculum developed, updated, and field-tested by and for contractors. The five-course program covers the essentials of project management for emerging project managers and provides a solid foundation for long-term career development.

    Is PMDP for You?

    PMDP participants are likely to have various titles depending on the kind of work they perform, the geographical location of their projects, and the size of their company. They may have titles such as assistant project manager, project manager, field engineer, project engineer, project administrator, etc. They may have experience as estimators, field personnel, project assistants, or office managers, and they may work in the heavy and highway sector, the commercial building sector, or in residential construction. They will most likely be early in their careers, have some post-high-school education, and less than two years of project-related experience.

    Module 2: Contract Administration

    This course will provide an understanding of how basic contracts are structured, how different types of contracts are used, and how project documentation relates to effective contracting for early-career project managers.

    Following successful completion of Module 2, participants will have the ability to:

    • Discuss how basic contracts are structured, the different types of contracts used in construction projects, and how project documentation relates to effective contracting
    • Identify important contract law and language and how they are related to project risk
    • Distinguish between agent and independent contracts, torts and contractual liability cases, and the difference between criminal and civil proceedings
    • Identify how different project delivery methods use different contracting strategies
    • Describe the process for contract amendments, changes, extensions, and final terms
    • Defend the importance of dispute resolution and good-faith negotiation in resolving contract disputes
    • Distinguish between partial and material breaches and understanding the significance of termination, bankruptcy, and breach of contract claims
