Project Cost Engineering & Risk Management Course (Makati, Philippines - May 18-20, 2020) - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "Project Cost Engineering & Risk Management" training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Project cost engineering course will equip participants with the skill and knowledge to control cost in their projects. They will learn the foundation of cost estimating, cost control and planning. It is recognised that improving cost engineering capabilities within the industry contributes to the development of affordable products and technologies. There is growing demand at local, national and international levels to impart cost and affordability engineering knowledge to support organisations that seek high-quality cost engineers.

Cost Engineering and Risk Management (Day 1 - 3) program will cover the latest techniques and practical methodologies of project cost engineering and risk management to successfully manage project cost and risk, in order to maximize business ROI in the long run. You will gain the combination of unmatched risk analysis skills, cost engineering and thorough knowledge of your project parameters and uncertainties.

TOP LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Master the methodologies of project cost engineering to maximize business ROI
  • Learn to prepare cost estimates and cost reduction strategies from high-level factor estimating to a very detailed equipment material cost
  • Understand the business context, project life cycle and the purpose of cost engineering
  • Discover the principles and methodologies of risk analysis and execute risk mitigation
  • Identify and apply the techniques to control, forecast and report the cost and monitor project performance
  • Grasp the impact of project location, market environment, and project execution
  • Determine how to control, forecast and report the cost and progress during project execution
  • Develop the skills and knowledge to review and reconcile cost estimates
