CEC is pleased to announce that it will once again offer the highly acclaimed Estimating Conference Oct. 17-19 in Toronto. This conference focuses not on how to estimate but rather on project procurement and strategies. Sessions covered will include deal breakers, project risk and go/no-go strategies, putting together a proposal, and what a general contractor looks for in its selection process — to name a few. Jack Wilhelmi and Tim Wentz from MCA America will lead the conference; Dan Leduc from Norton Rose Fulbright will deliver a special session of his own. Registration is limited to just 30 people, so register today!
More than 1,000 students have completed the 10-day PM CEC/University of Waterloo course since its inception in 2000. This latest session is sure to be another sellout. If you have new hires or people looking to upgrade or refresh their PM skills, this is the course for them! As a bonus, the program is Gold Seal-accredited for those who wish to pursue their certification.
As with all courses, be sure to look into the Canada Job Grant for funding assistance.
There are just 14 days left to apply to CEC for a scholarship! Applications are due July 31.
