    Program Overview
    This new program will provide the essential skills of project management through five separate courses. Each highly interactive, 16-hour course will be held over two days providing participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to enhance their ability to work successfully with others to ensure project success. Since 2009, the AGC NYS has graduated over 150 individuals from the program and countless others have taken a few select classes.
