Online Schedule Forensic Delay Analysis Training Course

his is a practical hands-on course with no software product used throughout, and provides in-depth training on the principles behind Schedule Forensic Delay Analysis. It commences with the fundamentals of creating a quality CPM Programme and investigates how to interrogate the quality of a Programme against the DCMA 14-Point Schedule assessment and in line with global best practices for planning & scheduling. We will then introduce delay analysis techniques, and discuss their applicability and use. Finally, we will discuss current contractual issues that impact the handling of delays.

We will interrogate sample scenarios and how to review these programmes based against the various methods of delay techniques taught in the class.

This course can be privately run which facilitates a maximum of 9 delegates. If you wish to register your group on this course please contact us.

No prior knowledge required but a basic understanding of Planning & Scheduling is an advantage but not a necessity.

Planners, Schedulers, Quantity Surveyors, Engineers, Project Managers, Contract Managers/Directors, Claims Specialists

The course will be delivered by instructors with decades of experience in Contract Management, Planning & Scheduling Forensic Delay Analysis (FDA).
