To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
This first of three courses covering the scope, time and analysis of construction costs, commonly called Project Controls, covers many aspects of task and time scheduling using Microsoft Project as an aid in developing, monitoring and controlling construction projects. Topics include planning activity interrelationships, milestones, task duration and risk, managing resources, and managing float time.
Acceptance into the Construction Management degree program or departmental approval.
