Congratulations are in order for the students of IPM Classes 81 and 82, who have just become the newest graduates of the MCAA’s Institute for Project Management! They join the ranks of the more than 2,600 project managers who have completed this two-week program designed specifically for the mechanical industry.
Since 1987 the IPM has been teaching best practices in everything from scheduling to job cost control, from contracts to change order negotiation. Taught largely by volunteers who are active leaders of MCAA member companies, this program and its content are constantly evolving to meet the needs of industry project managers as they navigate the ever-changing landscape of mechanical contracting.
Because the program is highly competitive, IPM attendees are ‘best in class’ mid-career project managers – and we certainly saw that this last week, as participants rose to every challenge we placed before them. While we are proud of the IPM curriculum and its practical applicability, what really makes this program is the degree to which students engage – not only with the content and the instructors, but also with each other. After two weeks of working together through intensive training, these grads have built a network of peers and formed friendships that we hope they will maintain for the rest of their careers!
