Construction Project Management (Basics for Accounting and Admin Personnel)

This new course is a mirror-image of the Finance and Accounting for Non-Financial Managers’ course in that it educates accountants and admin personnels on the role of the PMs and their responsibilities. The participants will learn the integral parts of the PMs tasks and, in so doing, each will be able to improve their respective roles in project management and accounting.

Participants in this one-day, classroom course will learn and appreciate many ways project results can be enhanced by understanding how accounting practices, cost controls and financial reports contribute to project success. Not only will the construction projects’ performance improve when accountants and PMs work more closely together, each course participant will most assuredly gain a much better understanding of construction project management. A win-win situation for all involved!

  • Roles and responsibilities of project managers.
