Notification The CMP programme has been presented annually since 2007 and has followed developments on the construction front. Companies wishing to sponsor prospective delegates for the 2017 CMP are invited to submit their requests as soon as possible to the CMP director.

In 2017 the programme will be structured for persons involved in planning, development, design and management of construction delivery. CMP 2017 will be presented over a period of four weeks, full-time. The very successful total emersion learning methodology will be applied to expose the delegates to the very latest theories, tools and techniques in all aspects of business management in the construction sector. Our alumni are to be found in key positions in infrastructure and building development in Africa and around the world.

A chair in Construction Engineering Management which was established in the Department of Civil Engineering at Stellenbosch University in January 2010. The Chair now participates fully in the management of the CMP and is the responsible entity for the presentation from Stellenbosch University.

The Faculty for CMP 2017 will be spearheaded by a collaborative effort between tertiary institutions led by the Stellenbosch University. This will be augmented and supported by faculty drawn from a much wider body of experts and practitioners who may be described as the best in their field in South Africa. Several distinguished academics from countries around the world will also be involved. The material and teaching methodologies are highly stimulating and the material is worked through individually and in group assignments.

Content Since the inception of the CMP in 1976 it has always adapted to meet current challenges. The CMP of 2017 faces extraordinary times that required innovation, wisdom and lateral thinking. In 2015 the annual theme was the "Construction Industry of the Future - implementing strategic megaprojects". The theme followed after the annual theme of 2014 which centred around leadership for implementing the National Development Plan (NDP). During the four week the theme built on shortcomings identified in 2013. The theme for CMP 2017 was defined as : Keys for Construction to add Value to Society.

Academic credits towards post graduate studies are awarded to CMP delegates who successfully complete the course and who are enrolled as students at Stellenbosch University (30 SAQA credits). CMP is accredited with ECSA for 16 CPD points.The accreditation will be renewed for 2017 and an application for CPD accreditation with SACPCMP will be submitted.
