Manheim, PA, March 2, 2022—Associated Builders and Contractors-Keystone Chapter is pleased to announce the Chapter has been chosen to host ABC National’s prestigious Project Management Institute (PMI) during the weeks of May 16 and July 19, 2022. The intensive, two-week Project Management Institute is developed by experienced contractors and Kirk Alter, professor emeritus at Purdue University and president at Fast Management, Inc., Indiana. Mr. Alter is a nationally recognized subject matter expert with decades of construction project management experience. Today’s contractors face unique challenges, and this education experience is tailored to provide tangible tools to improve profitability, productivity, quality, and customer satisfaction.

The highly interactive, rapid-paced PMI focuses on project management essentials using real-world applications through interactive, project management courses, and contractor case studies. Participants will obtain the management tools and skills needed for individual success and for making a positive impact on their organization. Graduates will gain a comprehensive understanding of successfully handling all aspects of project management.

The PMI is designed for company owners, project managers, estimators, and any employee involved in managing projects. The program will include 80 hours of instruction in two non-concurrent 40-hour sessions with an interim period between classes for applied assignments and reporting. Participants must attend both weeks of the Institute to complete the course.
