E-730 - Construction Management

20 days PL/CONSTGB
  • This training is aimed at young field engineers and supervisors responsible for managing construction activities on site.
  • This course provides a thorough understanding of the construction activities, up to precommissioning, the associated management challenges and the control tools needed to succeed in project realization.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • evaluate and manage HSE and security risks on the construction site,
  • manage construction projects with efficient skills,
  • monitor and control quality, schedules, and costs during construction activities.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • This course is illustrated by:
  • Exercises for each step of the construction progress,
  • Numerous examples taken from Oil & Gas construction activities.
All the modules are independent and may be taken separately. Please refer to the training description for more details. E-730 may be validated, upon request, after all modules have been completed. The content may be customized upon client request. Course durations serve as a reference and may vary depending on course organization, knowledge of the group of trainees and the client’s request.
