    Event Description:

    It is every supervisors goal to complete their project on time and within the estimated budget.  This STP online course is intended to teach the skills necessary for effective control of construction costs at the job site.

    You will study construction cost and apply principles and practices associated with cost awareness and production control to each element of the project. Cost control begins with the estimate and then continues through work and cost analysis, production scheduling, reporting, production control and ends with project evaluation. The information will be studied by solving common construction problems, the consideration of case studies and discussion of common cost control issues.
