09/18/19  - Dan Chavis, President of Development Facilitators, Inc. (DFI), and Scheryl Lloyd, a Construction Manager for DFI, have achieved the Certified Construction Manager (CCM) designation issued by the Construction Manager Certification Institute (CMCI).  CMCI administers the CCM® program, which is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under the International Standards Organizations (ISO) 17024 Standard.

CCMs are individuals who have voluntarily met the prescribed criteria of the Certified Construction Manager Program with regard to formal education, field experience and demonstrated capability and understanding of the construction management (CM) body of knowledge. The CCM designation is awarded to those who have met the professional standards and have demonstrated a commitment to and interest in providing the highest quality professional CM services available.

The criteria for certification are based on both formal academic training and professional project management field experience. Key to the program is the mandatory four-year Responsible-in-Charge (RIC) construction manager experience. The applicant requires verification of the experience that was realized during project execution as a part of a project delivery team; further, this experience must be in the roles and functions of a construction manager throughout all phases of construction as defined by CMAA (Construction Management Association of America).

Applicants for the CCM must complete a comprehensive and rigorous process including completion of the application with client references that is reviewed by CMCI staff and evaluated by the CMCI Board of Governors, and passing a comprehensive five-hour exam based on the CMAA Standards of Practice and the CII Best Practices Guide. Certification is renewable on a three-year basis with mandatory continuing education requirements.

The CCM program is a wholly owned subsidiary of CMAA, an association that supports professional CMs in enhancing their performance and capabilities. The CCM program demonstrates CMAA's mission to promote professionalism and excellence in the management of the construction process and its own mission to recognize through certification individual knowledge and experience that meet established practices of construction management.
