About the Course

The interaction of triple project constraints (i.e., time, cost, and quality trade-off) together with sound risk management practices throughout the project life cycle will be the significant input for the successful completion of complex projects and enhancing client satisfaction in terms of creating more value and benefit. 

This Advanced Project and Construction Management training course is built on lessons learned and practical experience from earlier projects. It is designed for experienced practicing project managers, construction managers, senior engineers, surveyors, project planners, and schedulers who require detailed knowledge of complex and comprehensive techniques to allow them to plan, monitor, and control project performance with confidence and deal with problems as they occur. It will focus on proven techniques for analysing risks and minimising their impact on project objectives. The 5-day interactive training course will describe the management of the project from its initiation to project close-out, where the lessons learned are gathered and recorded with the participation of project team members and other key stakeholders

Core Objectives

The training course is targeted to furnish delegates with the required knowledge, tools, and techniques to complete the projects on time, to meet desired quality levels, and at the targeted cost.

The delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the methods that will be used to complete the projects successfully
  • Achieve a detailed understanding of risks and what might go wrong
  • Know the best practices for project planning and scheduling
  • Learn how to deal with costs and deal with cost performances
  • Understand the risk response strategies and learn how to monitor and control the risks
  • Understand how to manage changes
  • Learn the causes of delay, and understand the extension of time claims 
  • Understand how disputes arise and methods of prevention and resolution
Training Approach

This training course provides practical skills and generally accepted principles in the construction industry. It is packed with tools and techniques, and lessons learned from various projects and will be comprised of exercises to allow for a “hands-on” approach to learning. Use up-to-date learning practices, current material, and actual case studies to the maximum possible extent. The delegates will be given a pre-assessment test at the beginning of the training course. They will be encouraged to participate actively and allow live group discussions to exchange experiences. Upon completion of the course, a post-assessment test will be conducted.
