Our mission is to provide training opportunities, education services and information to the construction industry, and act as a resource to promote and enhance productivity, quality and safety within the industry.
CAMTEC, the training and education center at CAM, offers a wide variety of classes, seminars and presentations on all aspects of construction. All sessions are available at the CAMTEC facility in the CAM headquarters located in Bloomfield Hills, or can be taken to the field on jobsites, in office settings, etc.
Courses offered by CAMTEC are open to all areas of the construction industry and allied personnel; however, there are separate tuition requirements for CAM members and non-members. Where there are prerequisites, or where previous educational background for specific courses is required, such conditions are noted in the course description. CAMTEC has an extensive listing of core educational programs for the construction industry, and each year new classes are added to the list. Programs are designed for the construction industry, and are taught by instructors familiar with industry practices and standards. Construction personnel are encouraged to call or email with suggestions for new course offerings.
CAMTEC Certification of Attendance : Participants in any of the CAMTEC sponsored programs will receive a Certificate of Participation that serves as a record of attendance. One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is awarded for each ten contact hours of instruction. Educational units are awarded in accordance with guidelines set forth by the National Task Force on the Continuing Education Unit. Students must attend 75% of all class time to be eligible to receive CEUs and a Certificate of Completetion.
