“Who is this course designed for?  Is it right for me?”


New hires and college students – So, you’ve never used MS Project for a construction schedule before?  That’s OK.  You will learn what you need to know from the beginning and be rocking out a schedule in an hour.

Estimators – You need an MS Project schedule for every job you bid, so you can estimate overhead and general conditions.  You could win more jobs by simply building a tight, accurate schedule.

Project engineers – You need to be able to build out a solid project schedule to move up to the next level.

Project managers – Maybe you’ve been scheduling your projects using spreadsheets.  Or maybe not scheduling at all.  It’s time to get more sophisticated and build a schedule that will work for you, instead of the other way around.

Construction executives and business owners – Time is one of the most valuable resources your team manages every day, and you can get them all trained to build quality schedules for the projects they are estimating and managing.

Engineers and Architects – You need to build design schedules to ensure your team of consultants delivers on time, and you need the ability to build out a construction schedule to include in your bid documents (so you don’t hammer the contractors with unrealistic schedule deadlines!)

“Who is this course NOT for?”

The Scheduling Guru If you spend all your days on a mountaintop, building complex scheduling works of art on Primavera or MS Project, this course is not for  you.  You are probably way more skilled in the scheduling arts than I am.

Non-Construction people – While you are certainly welcome to enroll, this Microsoft Project tutorial is specific to the AEC industry and may not be what you’re looking for.
