Project Management in Construction Online

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Project managers in the Philippines construction industry may have the experience to undertake the most complicated engineering projects for our developing local economy, but the impending challenge of integration with neighboring economies carry with it huge opportunities as well as huge demands for construction project managers in terms of project delivery at the right time and the right cost.

Filipino construction managers will benefit from the latest knowledge, skills, tools and techniques of the Project Management Institute’s “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)”, the reference of the latest ISO standard on project management (ISO 21500:2012) which has evolved to becoming the indispensable guide for managing projects for more than three decades.

The Project Management in Construction Online is a comprehensive course on the Project Management framework of the Project Management Institute (PMI)® and shall consist of lectures, workshops and group activities based on an actual construction project to facilitate a thorough understanding of the PMBOK® Guide as the foundational knowledge resource for understanding projects, with discussions of considerations and applications of fundamental project-management knowledge in the context of construction projects.
