If you're interested in becoming an accomplished project controls professional, this training will establish your understanding of all the fundamental concepts, processes, and procedures necessary. Many people mistakenly think taking a course on project management software is enough and that knowing how to use a computer application qualifies them to be professionals in project scheduling.

Dr. Mubarak, drawing from his 30+ years of in-the-field project experience, will teach you the proper approach to creating construction project schedules. Specifically, you will cover the life cycle of a construction schedule, from the moment the project is conceived, including estimating, creating a network, scheduling, analysis and updating. From there, Dr. Mubarak will focus on CPM scheduling and the intricacies of applying the Critical Path Methodology to real-life Construction timelines. You'll also cover precedence networks, bar charts, total float, lag and lead time, calendars, driving relationship and many more topics specific to scheduling. But that's not all - get ready for real stories and lessons from the field as told only the way Dr. Mubarak can.
