Another amazing Student Chapter Summit is in the books!
 
Each year MCA Canada brings together participating student chapters for two days of networking, education and site visits. Participating chapters in this year’s event (from January 30 to February 1) included MCA Hamilton-Niagara/McMaster University, MCA Manitoba/University of Manitoba, MCA Kitchener Waterloo/Conestoga College and MCA Toronto/Ryerson University.

The Construction Education Council is pleased to announce the latest series of dates in its always-popular Project Management Program.

Book your calendars for the week of March 5 to 9 and March 26 to 30 for this informative gold and blue seal-accredited 10-day course. The course is designed to help you:

  • improve the planning and controlling of your projects,
  • take a business view of projects and take ownership of a project from bid to final payment,
  • increase your own project “lessons learned” by learning from experiences of other
    participants,
  • be able and willing to contribute improvements to your company’s project management
    process, and
  • be better prepared to take the Gold Seal examination, if you choose.
