Construction Planning & Scheduling Certificate Program
Brought to you by the Emerging Leaders Program! Planning and scheduling are central to the construction process. How well we plan and schedule affects not only the time required to build, but also cost, productivity, quality, safety, and customer satisfaction. These courses are for everyone involved in project success.
Participants will learn critical planning and scheduling concepts, methods, and skills. This is a 4-unit 12-hour program, delivered in 8 sessions of 90 minutes.
