In Person

We work hard to find experienced instructors with respected track records and local industry mentors to lead our courses to ensure all students are getting the most from their training. Small class sizes allow for discussion and each industry focused course is a chance to network with other members of the industry. 

The mandatory in-class portion of Construction Industry Ethics is now here!

 

Ethical behaviour should be written on your chin, so you can always lead with it.  By maintaining high ethical standards, and being consistent in our practices, we thrive both personally and professionally.  Construction Industry Ethics has been designed to impart practical knowledge on how to proceed in a manner that is both ethical and intelligent.  This course is an invaluable tool for any individual in the industry, from owners to new hires.  Whether you're looking to build a strong ethical foundation, or improve upon the one you have, Construction Industry Ethics will help you achieve those goals!

 

Please note that this class is REQUIRED in order to challenge the Gold Seal exam.  The online portion is also required (and is best taken before attending the in-class portion - but is not a prerequisite to attending).  This course complements and supplements the online course by leveraging the experience and skill of Brian Klashinsky.

 

Who Should Attend: This course is intended for owner/clients, contractors, supervisors, project managers, etc. who must deal effectively and professionally with employees, subtrades, owners, clients, engineers, employers, and the public.

 

About the instructor:

 

Brian has over forty years experience in the Construction Industry.  A licensed Building Inspector, Contract/Construction Administrator for several Architectural firms; past Director with the Prince Albert Construction Association Executive; Journeyman Carpenter, Site Superintendent, Estimator and Project Manager and is currently in the position of Project Manager for Clark Builders for 6+ years.  Brian has established himself as a respected and sought after mentor in the industry, and we are delighted to have him as the instructor for Construction Industry Ethics.

Our second session centres on a skill every leader needs to have:  Decision Making.  This interactive session will offer tools on how to understand the most important factors to consider (and to ignore) when making a decions, and tie these together with insights on how to actually use these tools in a variety of scenarios.  Emphasising the need to incorporate a manageable and practical number of perspectives when making a decision, this session will help you to make better decisions and make decisions better!

Earned Value Management (EVM) is a project planning and control approach which provides

cost and schedule performance measurements. It compares actual accomplishment of scheduled

work and associated cost against an integrated schedule and budget plan. Its benefits include

visibility into the true progress of the project work against the budget, projections of anticipated

project schedule and cost trends and the ability to take timely corrective actions for undesired

variances. EVM is one of the most powerful and productive concepts utilized in managing today's complex projects in private, commercial or government environments.

 

Participants will:

  • Obtain basic knowledge in understanding and using an effective performance management system in managing construction projects effectively
  • Detect both positive and negative trends in a timely manner
  • Forecast the Projected Final Cost (Estimate at Completion) using several techniques
  • Make project decisions concerning scope, cost and schedule parameters faster, more effectively and more confidently
  • Learn to avoid the pitfalls of project management by quickly identifying potential project risks and mitigate them as early as possible.

Our series continues with the skill that both keeps you sane and gets your team invested:  Delegation.  This session will both help participants generally as managers/coaches of teams, and help them identify the different approaches they might be unintentionally taking.  Directing a team member is different than Delegating to a team member, and while both might be necessary, knowing when and how to do one or the other is crucial to a well-functioning team (and leader)!  The session will also help enhance participants understanding of how Developing one's team is integral to becoming a better leader.

 

NOTE:  Attendance in all sessions of the Leadership Series is highly encouraged but in no way mandatory!  Each session is designed to both stand on its own, and easily integrate into the others.

Contractor success depends heavily on the field production of tradesmen. This seminar will define Field Productivity, discuss the effects of low Field Productivity and outline approaches to increase Field Productivity.

 

Outline –

1. Introduction to Field Productivity

2. The Contractor’s Role in improving Productivity

3. The Supervisor’s Role in Improving Field Productivity

4. Labour Productivity

5. Equipment Productivity

6. Factors that Impact Productivity

7. Quantifying Lost Productivity

 

The aim of this course is to provide tools for scheduling at the Site and Crew Level. Site Management (Superintendent, General Foremen and Foremen) influence millions of dollars of construction a year. They must ensure that all resources are being used efficiently with minimal waste. Yet often, they receive very little in the way of training on how to plan and schedule field activities.
