Thriving in today’s competitive transportation construction market means having the best team on the job and arming them with the skills they need to increase efficiency, minimize project delivery time and generate profit.

The ARTBA Foundation will host back-to-back the Project Management Academy (PMA) and P6® Scheduling Academy—to help both new and experienced transportation construction industry professionals better manage their firm’s projects.

The highly-acclaimed PMA, scheduled for March 9-11, is built around an acknowledged adult learning model supported by peer-to-peer knowledge sharing.  These instructors will cover the following topics:

  • Planning & Scheduling: Brigham Young University Professor Jay Newitt, author of “Construction Scheduling, Principles and Practices”
  • Industry Ethics: Lorraine D’Angelo, LDA Compliance Consulting, Inc.
  • Client Relations: Steve Dewitt of Parsons Brinckerhoff
  • Construction Documentation: Chris Anzidei, law offices of Christopher Anzidei, PLLC
  • Management/Leadership & Resource Management: Dr. Rich Feyerabend, senior training manager at Capital One, and Dr. Jim Gelatt, the University of Maryland University College director of Interdisciplinary Studies in Management Track
  • Economics of Safety: ARTBA’s Senior Vice President of Safety & Education Brad Sant

The March 11-13 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 project aspects, such as people, materials, operational benchmarks and payment schedules.  This unique program uses hands-on and effective training designed specifically to help industry professionals adapt the P6® software to their own needs.  Dr. Newitt will also guide students through the complex principles of Critical Path Method scheduling, which can help with timing and resource allocation during the delivery of complex transportation construction projects.

Industry executives can register for one or both academies.  Learn more about your options.
