Solid Support offers face-to-face project management training specifically for people working in the construction industry. The courses are created by our construction planning experts. They are delivered by our team of experienced consultants who have trained thousands of construction industry professionals. This means that you will learn valuable practical information and best practices in addition to the standard training topics that the curriculum offers.
During our project management training, you will learn how to create a new schedule or take ownership of an existing schedule. You will learn how to adjust, resource, monitor and revise that schedule over the life of the project. We begin with the basics by teaching fundamental planning techniques, and can cater for all levels of experience.
We have divided each of our courses into various process driven modules. All the trainees begin at module 1 and work through depending on required competency. From experience, we know that this rectifies poor fundamentals and increases the outcome of good implementation after the course. Each module only takes 4 – 6 hours because we understand that your project team members can’t miss a full day on-site.
The Powerproject Training modules are designed for those who are new to Powerproject and need a basic overview, or are looking for a refresher and to catch up on the latest version.
