About the Program 

Classes are taught by university-level instructors and/or those acknowledged to be highly experienced project management professionals. This limited enrollment program focuses on core skills like communications, labor, legal, dealing with change orders and project close-out. This program is designed for project managers who have less than five years of project management experience, little or no formal project management training, or employees who are not project managers but have the potential to be a project manager.

The EPM program will help you:

  • Better prioritize your work
  • Appreciate how to manage in a way that is typically only learned through years of on the job training
  • Increase your confidence to do what’s right to protect the work and best represent your company on a project
  • Improve your relations with general contractors, customers, other subcontractors, and most importantly your boss, foreman and employer overall.

Candidates are required to fill out a formal application that ensures their readiness for the program and willingness to commit to it.

Classes will be taught at our Burr Ridge location and virtually using Zoom. For Zoom programming, attendees will be required to participate in classes using their web camera and audio.
