Description

The aim of this course is to provide tools for scheduling at the Site and Crew Levels. Project Management and Site Management (Superintendent, General Foremen, and Foremen) influence millions of dollars of construction a year. They must ensure that all resources are being used efficiently with minimal waste. Yet often, they receive very little in the way of training on how to plan and schedule field activities. 

This one-day workshop covers: 

  • Planning Principles 

  • Network Schedules 

  • Critical Path 

  • Gantt (Bar) Charts 

  • Manpower Curves 

  • Progressing the Work 

  • Productivity and Performance Factors 

  • Look-Ahead Schedules 

  • Daily Work Plans 

 

Delivery Method: Virtual Session - GoToTraining Platform.  

Course Fee Includes: Access to the course, course materials, and a digital certificate upon completion. 

 

This course is delivered in partnership with local and provincial construction associations across Canada. You may be participating with a group of industry peers from multiple regions.

Sharing a single registration between two or more individuals is not permitted. Please register each person that will be in attendance.

    • Windows 10 or Mac iOS. 

  1. Webcam (Mandatory)– in order to engage and collaborate, participants will be expected to have their webcams on for the duration of the class

  2. Microphone (Mandatory)

  3. Internet connection- For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. The minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
