SOLD OUT - Project Planning for Success - VILT

Multi-day Course:
Location Title: Live, Online, Virtual Instructor Led Training via Adobe Connect
Cancellation Period: 5 Business Days

Learn how to reduce costs, save time, improve quality and reduce scope changes by creating an effective Construction Execution Plan (CEP) at the start of your project. Effective planning is critical in the overall success of any construction project, but focus is often directed at winning the work, followed by a rush to get started. Without taking adequate time to plan the work in advance, we put successful project outcomes at risk.

This course will teach you how to create a Construction Execution Plan (CEP) that communicates, in simple language, the sequence of events required to construct the project and to meet key milestones. Once complete, you can use your CEP as a tool or “road map” to provide information to others about how the project will be managed and constructed.
