Course Duration: 3 Days
Cost: R8,500.00 (Excluding VAT)
Program Material: Program Manual
PMI Code: PM97
Course Overview:
Few project teams are subject to higher levels of risk and uncertainty than those involved in engineering and construction. If risks are not adequately contained, both margins and reputations may be jeopardized.

Good records management is found on every well-run project. Organizations that lack skills or tools in this area expose themselves to increased risk of claims, disputes and litigation, as well as to the time and budget over-run that follows.

Document controllers are relied upon by project teams to manage the sharing, accessing, filing, storing, coordinating and retrieving of project information. Inefficiencies in these processes are not only costly in terms of time lost, but also leave organizations exposed to risks of errors.
Developed and run by industry professionals, Certificate in Document Control is the first professional development course to offer specialized training in document control in a construction or engineering project environment. While other courses offer general records management training, this course is specific to managing projects in the construction industry, as well as the job functions and environment of a document controller. 
In addition, participants will learn how to apply their knowledge using the advanced features of the Aconex platform, the industry standard for collaborative Project Information Management.
