From a team of multi-discipline trainers: CCDC 5A & 5B Construction Management “Keys to Success”

May 11 @ 8:30 am - May 13 @ 12:30 pm

From a team of multi-discipline trainers: CCDC 5A & 5B Construction Management “Keys to Success”

For the first time, we are bringing virtual instructor-led expertise to your office through the synergy of multi-discipline trainers’ knowledge that has only been delivered at conferences. And it gets better! In the past, conference presentations have been focused on a one-way exchange of know-how from the speakers to you. This course moves beyond that one-way exchange to allow you to apply what you have learned.

A team of multi-discipline experts will provide you with exceptional feedback, great insight and actionable strategies. They look forward to sharing their expertise with you.

Computer or laptop with webcam (webcams are mandatory): This workshop will involve 100% on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing onscreen
content like slides or videos, and interacting via typing with questions or responses. We do not permit students to attend using a tablet or cell phone.
