Construction PM

Professional Construction Project Manager

ProjectPro lends a helping hand to register for Pr.CPM

Buildings that collapse while under construction are unfortunately common occurrences these days. The latest collapse in Lagos resulted in 115 people being killed. Unapproved additions to existing structures seem to be the main reason. In South Africa the Meyersdal and Tongaat collapses recently killed 9 people and are under investigation by the Department of Labour. The Tongaat contract had a court order stopping construction, but was ignored by the contractor.

These tragedies could have been avoided if a registered Construction Project Manager had been appointed .

The Project and Construction Project Management Professions Act 48 of 2000 requires persons who manage projects within the Built Environment from conception to completion, including management of related professional services, to be registered with the SACPCMP as a Professional Construction Project Manager (Pr.CPM). The Built Environment includes all structures that are planned and/or erected above or underground, as well as the land utilised for the purpose and supporting infrastructure.
ProjectPro offers:

  • a facilitation service to companies to register their staff as Pr.CPMs
  • a Construction Project Management course for individuals to ensure that they are compliant with the law. ProjectPro's course has been validated SACPCMP/CPD/12/023 for 5 credits.

The next Construction Project Management 3-day course is scheduled for Gauteng on 22 - 24 October 2014 .

The CPM course has two aims:

  • To prepare construction project managers to apply for and be successful in the SACPCMP Test of Professional. Competency, Recognition of Prior Learning assessment and the Professional Interview.
  • To gain Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits required by SACPCMP to retain the PrCPM status. The course contributes 5 credits.
  • The course facilitator is Terry Deacon PMP, an internationally recognised expert in the art and science of project management. For more information call Terry on 082 557 3119.
