Course overview

Effective construction project managers are adept at applying project management principles directly to construction projects of various sizes and complexity. Our course teaches you effective techniques to achieve successful project delivery.

As a project manager, you will be responsible for managing the construction project lifecycle from start to finish. This means managing the development process from initially working with clients on their requirements, through the design, procurement and construction stages, to the final handover. Competency in this area will enhance your skill set as a construction professional and ability to ensure successful project completion.

Through this course, you will delve into each stage and the critical steps within each.  This includes how to plan, organize and control construction operations, and the undertaking of initial feasibility studies through to design, construction, maintenance, refurbishment and demolition. All content is designed to give you a well-rounded view of construction project management and the essential skills required for managing a construction project. 

By completing all modules, you will have demonstrated knowledge of the core elements of construction project management and be able to apply key skills to co-ordinate building projects. The technical content is also aligned with the core competencies under the RICS project management pathway, and so will enhance your ability to become an RICS professional.
