Construction Quality Management for Contractors

The Baltimore District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in partnership with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, the Maryland Chapter Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) offers the Construction Quality Management For Contractors. This course is geared towards achieving construction quality. The mutual goal of the Contractor and the Government is to achieve a quality product, safely, on time and within budget. Quality management succeeds through a partnership between the Contractor and the Government. The contractor is responsible for the daily quality of the work, while the Government Quality Assurance helps ensure that the contractor's quality control program is effective. Scheduled goals are achieved through proactive contractor leadership that "builds it right the first time" avoiding costly rework. Effective quality control supports worker pride, results in favorable recognition, and has the potential to increase the profit margin for contractors.

BIM Training

“Hi, my name is Craig McIntyre and I have achieved my CM-BIM through the AGC – Maryland Chapter. It was a little bit of a drive for me since I live in PA but it was well worth it. Sue Battey was my coordinator that helped me every step of the way from getting my classes scheduled to getting me the class workbooks to even helping me out  with financial coordination. The AGC instructors were top notch. They were very knowledgeable and detail oriented and always kept the class on task. They even brought in a professional lawyer to give instruction on real world scenarios pertaining to BIM Law. So if you are looking to get certified in BIM and have an edge on your competitors when it comes to BIM, then Sue Battey at AGC – Maryland Chapter is the person to see. She is very eager to assist you in whatever you may need to get your own CM-BIM certification. Then you will see why AGC and its CM-BIM courses have become a national standard and are now on track to become an international BIM standard”
