PHOENIX (July 13, 2018)— Paul Johnson Drywall, Inc. (PJD) congratulates its two newest graduates of the Project Manager Development Program offered by the Arizona Builders’ Association in conjunction with the Associated General Contractors of America. Lou Eltringham and Austin Johnson recently completed the five-month program. Lou graduated from the program in December 2017 and Austin will celebrate his program graduation at a ceremony being held in December 2018.
The Project Manager Development Program is a professional development program for the construction industry, offered by the Arizona Builders’ Alliance (ABA) and the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). The program includes five modules focusing on skills including: job costing & estimating, contract administration, project administration, risk management, and leadership. Graduates earn certification upon completion of all requirements at the ABA’s annual graduation hosted each December.
“We encourage our employees to grow their skillset through professional development and educational programs in order that they are prepared to take on new responsibilities and their careers at PJD continue to be both professionally and financially rewarding, said Robert “Cole” Johnson, president of PJD. “Because promoting from within is a priority at the company, we gladly cover the cost of programs like this as well as college classes that help to advance our people and as a result, they advance our company and our customers’ projects. I’m proud of Lou and Austin for taking the initiative and earning this certification, which is already bringing stronger leadership and project management to our teams in the field and their work with our customers.”
“The class not only expanded my industry knowledge, it also provided me with insight into the perspective of general contractors as well as provided innovative approaches to structuring projects and more effective implementation practices,” said Lou Eltringham, Manager at PJD. “It was important to me to develop my management and leadership skills, while also developing relationships within the industry to bring new opportunities to our business, said Austin Johnson project manager/multi-family estimator at PJD. “Because the program is so practical, we were both able to apply aspects of the modules into our daily work, virtually immediately,” he added.
