Course Description   One Gold Seal Point 
Site supervisors, coordinators, and trade individuals have a lot to worry about when it comes to planning and controlling their day-to-day project tasks.  They need to prepare their project schedule and assign resources then track project deadlines through proper forecasting and enhanced scheduling tools and techniques.  Construction Scheduling for site supervisors is a one day hands-on training workshop that provides you with essential knowledge and tools to improve your skills and capabilities for proper scheduling and control of the project’s day-to-day tasks.   The course explains the theory and application for project scheduling and control using hands-on training exercises.
