1) If you have the time to attend a four year degree program, Construction Management would be the best choice. If you are not going to attend college or a certificate program then you can try the next route. 2) Field construction experience. Residential and commercial with the emphasis in commercial. 4-6 years in residential or 2-4 years in commercial. While you are in the field gaining that valuable experience, you need to be taking and mastering Excel, Word, MS Project and industry specific Project Management Application Database Programs or Software specific to the company where you want to climb out of the trenchs. i.e Construcware, Timberline and a solid accounting foundation etc..... Construction Project Managers need to know construction, finance, time management and be "UBER" organized. Organization, planning and finance are huge skills in this industry.
