Our Mission

To advance the skills and certify the competency of Project Managers in the architecture, engineering, and construction community.



The A/E/C Project Management Association was developed out of a need for project managers to advance their skills and become certified with a focus specifically on project management in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. Built by a task force of principals and senior project managers from some of the industry’s most respected firms, AECPMA is designed for individuals in all levels of project management – from junior-level individuals just starting their project management careers to senior-level PMs eager to continue learning and achieving certification.

What Makes AECPMA Different?

From the ground up, AECPMA is designed to be 100% focused on the unique needs of A/E/C Project Managers through:

  • Elite A/E/C PM Resources. Members have access to a one-of-a-kind content library covering A/E/C project management topics. The AECPMA designs each article, study, webinar, and manual with its members' needs in mind.

  • Monthly Newsletter. Each month, members are invited to read A/E/C project manager articles. Each offers ways to improve project management skills, as well as strategies and tips to make a good career, better.

  • A Like-Minded Community. With the AECPMA members-only Discussion Forum, members tap into an exclusive network of fellow A/E/C Project Managers. Here, they can get answers to questions, share experiences, and offer insights that help improve the day-in, day-out work of a PM in the A/E/C industry.

  • A Rigorous Certification Program for Project Managers. This is the ONLY industry-specific recognition for A/E/C Project Managers. Achieving such PM Certification proves to your employer and your clients that you are a highly skilled project manager.

While other groups and associations may bring together Project Managers across a wide range of industries, the challenge is that different industries have different priorities and needs. Not here--A/E/C Project Management Association has one purpose for one industry.
