In this course, we’re going to present and discuss the management of field construction projects. We’ll also cover management techniques for controlling cost, time, resources, and project finance during the construction process. Emphasis is placed on practical and applied procedures that have been proven effective.

Content is awesome
By on Dec, 13, 2019
Content is awesome. I had performance issues when it was time to type in answers to knowledge questions. Took over ten minutes to type in my answer. For the most part its great content however, it is slow and has performance issues. One question was not even included and I submitted a helpdesk ticket to your support team.

Good review

Good review.
good course material, but i found some technical issues with the software: 1) instead of "mark complete" at the end of the course material, a button for "start exam" was given that didn't work (so I called customer service to get course reviewed credit), and 2) the question is missing on course slide 53/57 for the checkpoint

Question was probably "what are the elements of project financial control" based on the answers. Thanks for your help. It is a good course otherwise, just needs a few tweaks.
Good coverage of a broad topic
By (Engineer) on Jul, 19, 2019
Good coverage of a broad topic. Too many nuances of contract types. I will take the more specific classes as well.
