MPM 1 - FUNDAMENTALS OF SUCCESSFUL PROJECT MANAGEMENT


The MPM-1 (Mechanical Project Manager-Level 1) program is designed to help mechanical project managers with 0-3 years of experience build their careers. The program is also useful for staff members who directly interface with or support project managers (engineers, estimators, detailers, contract administrators, accountants), or who simply wish to have a solid overview of all aspects of the mechanical contracting business.

  • Mechanical Industry Perspective
  • Project Documentation 
  • Safety 
  • Communication Style
  • Financial 
  • Scheduling
  • Labor Relations
  • Estimating 
  • Contracts 
  • Strategies for Career Success

 

Benefits:

  • Acquire basic project management skills in much less time than it would take to learn them on the job.
  • Gain a solid introduction to key areas that impact profit and loss.
  • Develop good communication skills and organizational habits early in your career.

Classes will meet virtually on Tuesdays & Thursdays, March 31st-June 16th, from 10:00-11:30 a.m.

There will be an Orientation session on March 31 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. to meet instructors and test technology.
