Essentials of Project Management Class
Offered each March at the National Conference Center in Leesburg, VA (Near Wash. Dulles Airport)
In the four-day Essentials of Project Management course, experienced project managers will pick up dozens of new ideas on site management, scheduling, cash flow and finances, marketing and how to manage people. New project managers and foremen who are making the transition from the field to the office gain the know-how they need to manage projects the right way from the start. The course also gives new or future business owners a head start on what they need to know to survive in the construction business.
The next Essentials class will be held March 18 to 21, 2020.

“I should know this, but I was very surprised to see that we all have the same problems. But we are all coming up with very unique and creative ways to solve those common problems.
That was one of the biggest take-aways for me, was how do I solve the same problems that everyone is having.”
— Mark Weaver, Project Manager at COPPERA in Taylor, Texas
Creating Super Foremen Workshop
The project foreman needs to be much more than just a talented journeyman who knows how to “go fast.” The foreman is the ﬁrst line of management in the company, and must become the quarterback by learning more than just the technical trade skills required to install the work.
Like a quarterback, he must have a carefully crafted and practiced game plan (or else it’s sandlot football), he must be able to execute the plan, he must be able to adjust the plan when teammates stumble or show less talent, he must provide accurate feedback to the coaches on the bench, and he must AT ALL TIMES keep his eyes on the goal of winning the game.
That’s what this two-day program is about…Winning the Construction Project Game!
“In short, a great class. For new and upcoming foremen, it gives guidelines for expectations and the structure to achieve them. For older foremen who have been in the game, gives you great info to improve everything you are doing.” — 2019 Foreman Workshop Attendee
The next session of this workshop will be held in summer 2020.
