Event description

Description

You have new project managers who need to ramp up quickly to deliver successful construction projects. This 2-day course introduces the essential tools of project planning and execution in a construction contracting environment. Participants practice project management techniques on a simple construction project that is developed through the complete project lifecycle, from initial project proposal and definition, through project implementation, and finally to the often neglected project completion phase.

Participants will leave this course with the ability to implement a structured process to successfully deliver small to medium sized construction projects for their organizations and for their customers.

This course is Gold Seal accredited by the Canadian Construction Association.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will gain practical skills to:

  • To learn and use the terminology and processes of modern project management.
  • To explain meaning of key clauses of CCDC2.
  • To identify your PM responsibilities from the start to the close of a project.
  • To prepare a complete and accurate project plan for a small project.
  • To provide some of the knowledge you need for the Gold Seal Project Manager’s certification.
  • To increase your own PM “lessons learned” by learning from the experiences of others.
  • To value the benefits of a consistent PM methodology.
