Budget Management: Managing Project Costs


ONLINE TRAINING: Begins October 2, 2019

LIVE INSTRUCTOR SESSION: October 9, 2019 (8:30 AM - 10:30 AM)

Blended Learning Session

What is "Blended Learning"?  Blended learning sessions (also known as hybrid or mixed-mode courses) are classes where a portion of the traditional face-to-face instruction is replaced by web-based online learning. This allows the participant to work through most of the training at their own pace, and according to their own schedule.


Description of this Session

The first step in successfully managing a project's costs is to develop a budget that realistically reflects the costs required to execute the project. This workshop will cover how to create master budget projects that identify all hard and soft costs to ensure your project cost reflects a complete number.



This workshop is a requirement in CI's Project Management Certificate program.

Learning Objectives 

  • Learn how to control project costs to ensure you meet the budget.
  • Learn what are the right contingencies to carry from initiation through planning & design.
  • Identify the tools needed to develop reliable cost estimates working upward from the project's work activities.
  • Use the schedule as a management tool.
  • Understand costs for construction, consulting fees, operations, move management, contingency allowances.
