  • Course Content
This course provides a comprehensive discussion of modern project management principles and practices as they relate to project concept selection, development planning, and engineering design; procurement; and construction activities for facilities in the oil and gas industry. The specific training received in schedule and cost management, risk management, and the proper use of scarce resources (people and materials) will help the project manager make the best decisions possible. Upon completion of this course, the participant will know what the six project management phases entail and be able to employ key project management knowledge areas and project control. Participants will understand how project management process groups relate to one another, how execution plans are used to integrate the work effort, what tools are available for the project manager to use, what information will be generated, and what that information means. The course is taught using a combination of instruction, facilitated discussion, and hands-on exercises using real-world project examples related to facilities design, procurement, and construction. The exercises will include both individual and group activities that will provide each participant with a visual application of the principles and practices discussed throughout the course.
