Project Management Mastery is designed to teach practical project management skills needed to successfully define, plan, and manage projects. This three-day course takes you through a step-by-step process for planning and managing projects of all types and sizes. Concepts and examples presented are reinforced through demonstrations and structured exercises using real-life projects. By the end of the course, each participant will have acquired hands-on experience in applying the concepts and techniques to produce a quality project plan. As California standards for building performance move in the direction of zero net energy and greenhouse gas reduction, good project management skills can assist teams to meet and exceed minimum requirements. Intended Audience: Individuals from architecture, engineering, general contracting, and consulting firms seeking to gain and improve project management skills that can be applied to building projects. This course is from 8:30 am - 5:00 pm days one and two (August 20 + 21); 8:30 am - 12:00 pm day three (August 22). There is a $250 fee for this training.
