Free Module From The Principles Of Project Planning Online Course

This module forms part of a full online course focused on the principles of project planning: foundations that are essential to becoming a skilled and successful Project Planner.

  • Activity Duration

    Learn what activity durations are, their attributes, and the different types of estimation, including Top-Down, 3-Point Estimates and Paramteric Estimating.

  • All About Activity Resources

    Discover the 3 different construction resource types, as well as the inputs, tools & techniques and outputs from the resource estimation process.

  • Durations vs Resources

    Find the link between activity resources and activity durations, and the impact of the one on the other.

  • Complete in Less Than 3 Weeks

    The module is designed to be completed in 3 weeks time, but since this free module does not include the assignment and mentorship section present in the full course, you should be able to complete it much quicker.

  • Practical Exercises

    In the full course, the exercises and assignments are extremely important, as Project Planning is easy to understand but difficult to apply. While there are less practical exercises in the free module, the exercises aim to put knowledge into action, leading to skill.

  • Feedback

    In the free module, there are no assignments to submit for feedback and mentorship. Exercises will be completed on your own. However, we have decided to gift you one exercise for submission, on which you will receive feedback from our team.
