Prepare for success in HCC’s Construction Management Apprenticeship Program. Construction managers plan, coordinate, budget and supervise construction projects. Duties may include:

  • Preparing timetables and schedules
  • Working with supervisors, clients and subcontractors
  • Ensuring buildings meet legal requirements and regulations

This is the only program of its kind in Maryland. Students complete on-the-job training while they earn their certificate. They graduate ready to enter their field or continue on to a four-year college.

Construction management is a growing industry. Increasing demand for workers makes it a secure career path. Our apprentices work full-time with construction companies in Maryland. At the same time, they complete construction management courses.

After the program is complete, students will be closer to starting their career. Apprentices will be eligible to take the Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT) certification exam. Students will also create a portfolio demonstrating skills such as:

  • Construction safety
  • Field surveying
  • Blueprint reading
  • Material testing
  • Project closeout

We encourage current students, interested construction management professionals or those currently employed by a licensed construction company to apply.
