Managing Capital Projects

This course is for individuals and/or organizations that are routinely charged with managing major capital projects. Using the Construction Extension to the PMBOK Guide® as your text, you will learn the fundamentals of project management as applied to capital projects, as well as two additional knowledge areas specific to capital projects: Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) and Financial Management. The material presented in this course contains modern perspectives on capital projects given by an experienced instructor who can explain the different levels and history of approaches to capital projects that led to current best practices. As a prerequisite, you must have completed Foundations of Project Management before taking this course.

Why You Should Attend
Capital projects are complex; the costs of failure, delays and over-runs are often orders of magnitude greater than that of other projects.  Applying a fail-fast methodology is a recipe for disaster. In this course, you will take the five process groups from the Foundations of Project Management class and apply each to capital project management. Capital project management professionals teach this course, developed specifically for sequential capital projects.  

Who Should Attend
Construction managers, project managers, contractors and their subcontractors, construction specialists, architects, engineers, NGOs, regulatory agencies, risk management specialists, developers, vendors, consultants and attorneys, insurers, trades, and other stakeholders with a vested interest in capital projects.
