Who is a construction manager? 

A construction manager can be defined as the professional who is having expertise in Construction management planning, coordinating, budgeting, and supervision of construction projects from beginning to finish. Apart from hiring as well as supervising workers, the construction managers need to estimate the costs of the project, determine the schedules, report about the progress, and also ensure all safety codes are followed.

To become a construction manager:

  • High school certification: First, complete your High school certification from a recognized school with science and maths as subjects.
  • Bachelor’s degree: Next, one needs to have a bachelor’s degree in construction engineering, construction science, construction management, or architecture. The degree must be completed from a recognized university as employers look for candidates from the best universities with excellent grades.
  • On the job training: an educational degree is not enough, and you need to learn techniques of construction management through on-the-job training under senior managers. The majority of the construction firms do prefer candidates having construction experience as well as a bachelor’s degree in the field of construction-related work.

If you are a resident of the UK then, you can surely make an application for the Apprenticeship via the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) after you study a wide range of subjects like English, Science, Maths, and Technology. You can also opt to study part-time for the HNC/HND.

  • License or certification: Although not compulsory but having a license or certification from the recognized association of construction management of your state will make you eligible for more options as construction managers. 
  • Skills needed for becoming a construction manager: There are few skills that the manager needs to have, and major among them are excellent communication skills as well as leadership skills. He/she need to be an inspiration for others and can motivate the complete tea, working under him or her. Having excellent IT skills is also essential in a good construction manager.

We can say that a construction manager needs to be the jack for all trades. The construction manager must understand all associated facets of the construction job, that covers the technical, business, besides legal aspects. After completing the studies, they can join a real estate or other construction company as a construction engineer/ manager. They can also become architectural engineers or general contractors too. Construction managers will be considered responsible for overseeing the projected increase in construction activity in the coming time. 

We hope, now, it's clear to you as to how you become a construction manager.
