Notification                                                                                                                (CMP Information 2024)

The CMP programme has been presented annually since 2007 and has followed developments on the construction front. Companies wishing to sponsor prospective delegates for CMP 2024 are invited to submit  applications to the CMP director. As before, the programme in 2024 will be structured for persons involved in planning, development, design and management of construction delivery.

CMP 2024 will be presented full time over a period of three weeks  with final assignment submissions 1 week later. The very successful total immersion 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. The Department of Civil Engineering now participates fully in the management of the CMP and is the responsible entity for the presentation from Stellenbosch University.

In the event that Covid-19 is still prevalent, we shall adhere to all social distancing protocol and safe practices. Only fully vaccinated persons will be accepted and proof of a negative Covid-19 test not older than 24 hours must be presented at registration.

Whilst historically the programme has been presented over four weeks, an optimisation exercise identified that time away from the office can be saved, also reducing the final cost, by making use of more intense preparatory work, and by completion of a final assignment post programme. This way the residence period could be optimised to the benefit of delegates and sponsoring organisations.

The Faculty for CMP 2024 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. A distinguished international academic will again be involved. The material and teaching methodologies are highly stimulating and the material is worked through individually and in group assignments.


Since the inception of the CMP in 1976 it has always adapted to meet current challenges. The CMP faces extraordinary times that required innovation, wisdom and lateral thinking. An annual theme for CMP is formulated in collaboration with the CMP Industry Advisory Board. Typically an annual theme is selected to match current industry conditions and challenges.

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 and with SACPCMP for CPD points.

A Stellenbosch University short course certificate will be issued to delegates who comply with the programme requirements for successful completion.

“CMP provides a unique enabling environment in which experienced industry professionals are able to gain both knowledge and access to extended networking groups”

“The CMP has a critical role to play in equipping individuals involved in built environment project delivery to meet the exciting growth challenges that lie ahead in South Africa and further afield. It has equipped me to approach my role as constructor in a proud, confident and knowledgeable way, enabling me to interface and contribute at all levels.”

Werner Jerling, CEO, ASLA
