Project Control is a vitally important aspect of project management regardless of the size of the project. Success of any project, whether an offshore hook-up, chemical plant shut-down or modifications to a plant, is more likely if it is effectively planned and then controlled throughout its life-cycle. The topics learnt on this course will enhance the likelihood of successful completion. This four day course is delivered in classroom style using the worked examples and case studies. It will give participants the skills and understanding to improve and develop their own project control performance.

This introductory course is aimed primarily at those new to the project environment; they may have been working in another capacity within the organisation or be graduates taking their first steps into the Engineering Construction environment. In either case, prior knowledge is not assumed or required since the course will deal with the subject starting with the very basic; "Project Control - the definition". The course is also deemed suitable for Engineers who carry out Project Controls functions such as Planning and Cost Control.
