To help maximize the time of transportation construction professionals, deliver the “best bang for your buck,” and help reduce travel costs, the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Foundation’s “Transportation Builder Institute” will host two of its professional development academies back-to-back during the first week of February.
The February 4-6 Project Management Academy (PMA), built around an acknowledged, highly successful adult learning model and taught by leading experts in the field, will cover several core areas:
- Planning & Scheduling: Brigham Young University Professor Jay Newitt, author of “Construction Scheduling, Principles and Practices.”
- Construction Documentation: Chris Anzidei, partner at Watt, Tieder, Hoffar & Fitzgerald, LLP.
- Management & Leadership and Resource Management: Dr. Jim Gelatt, the University of Maryland University College director of Interdisciplinary Studies in Management Track and author of three books on management.
- Economics of Safety: ARTBA Senior Vice President of Safety & Education Brad Sant.
- Client Relations: Christopher Fronheiser, associate vice president of transportation at AECOM.
The February 6-8 P6 Scheduling Academy will provide in-depth instruction on Primavera Project Planner (P6) software and other “tricks of the trade” to help efficiently track key aspects of transportation projects, such as people, materials, operational benchmarks and payment schedules. The academy will be led by acclaimed construction management expert Dr. Jay Newitt of Brigham Young University.
There are three options: PMA is $2,000 for ARTBA members ($2,700 for non-members.), P6 Scheduling Academy is $1,700 for ARTBA members ($2,100 for non-members), or register for both and save $1,000.
Up to 32 ARTBA Professional Development Hours are available.
