The Certified Associate Construction Manager (CACM) certification is CMAA’s mid-level credential that tests a CM’s ability to lead aspects of a construction project or program. The CACM is appropriate for those who have more experience than a CMIT but are not yet ready to lead an entire project or program on their own. For example, a CACM is someone who may be put in charge of at least one part of a program or project, such as developing the schedule or inspecting the work.



The Construction Manager-in-Training (CMIT®) Program is a starting point to help develop a successful career in the construction management industry. The CMIT is a professional credential recognizing the basic and fundamentals of construction management practices, demonstrated by those who have displayed high educational achievement and the desire to learn how to become competent, successful Construction Managers (CMs).
