Did you know the schedule plays a central role in construction project management? Developing an initial schedule is a powerful tool that you can use in managing various aspects of a project, including time, resources, production, and cost. This interactive online course concentrates on using the schedule to manage the time required to execute the construction processes. It begins by considering the project as a whole, determining how to shorten the overall project schedule, and looking at the cost trade‐offs of expediting the project. It then focuses on current or upcoming parts of the project with the objective of managing the project components more effectively.

Excellent course, but I had a very hard time streaming the videos. I was able to take the course, though, by downloading and playing the videos directly. Thank you for that provision.

Material delivered was helpful
By (Professional Organization) on Apr, 02, 2020
Material delivered was helpful. However, the transcript was needlessly verbose and came off as though the author wrote a draft, then went through with a thesaurus to make it sound "smarter"
Very interesting examples

my interface was clumsy (working from phone hotspot); figures not labelled, highlighting network when talking about it would have prevented me from missing conversation while looking for what was being talked about
By on Apr, 14, 2020
my interface was clumsy (working from phone hotspot); figures not labelled, highlighting network when talking about it would have prevented me from missing conversation while looking for what was being talked about. Recaps did not pull in the figures to reinforce items being "recapped". Overall I did not feel this was a best effort. What is my score on the exam???
some of the wording was not familiar to me

By (Engineer) on Sep, 03, 2019
not what was expected. focus on shortening time, was expecting more management
Some of the exam questions are a bit unclear
By (Engineer) on May, 25, 2020
Some of the exam questions are a bit unclear. You may be able to make the questions more clear and students may be able to make more accurate choices for the answers.

This class blew completely past the stated time limit
By (Engineer) on Apr, 21, 2020
This class blew completely past the stated time limit. Some of the most basic topics were repeated ad nauseam.
