How it works.

We teach you how to build construction programs  from scratch.

In our live, interactive courses, you follow along on Microsoft Project on your computer as the presenter demonstrates every step that you need to build the program or the EOT.

We all start from the starting point program template and build our programs together. The instructor stops at regular intervals throughout the workshop to make sure everyone is at the same point in their program so no man or woman is left behind.

In the online workshops, you will have the presenter on one screen and your program on the other. If you don’t have 2 screens you can just split your screen to have the demo on one side and Microsoft Project on the other.

In the in-person workshops, the presenter has their screen on the big screen at the front of the room and everyone works on their own programs on their laptops around a boardroom table. The presenter gets up at regular intervals to check participants work and answer questions.
The workshops are light-hearted and fun. We make sure that they are not boring and monotonous and everyone stays engaged for the whole time.

Extension of Time Essentials

From first principals, you will learn what Superintendents want to see in an EOT and how to make it clear and easy to approve. You will learn how to prepare an EOT program using the Time Impact Analysis method. This is a method that you can use on most EOTS to clearly show the delay to the program and quantify the number of days you can claim.
Once the program is done, you will prepare the actual EOT claim in a way that will be very hard to knock back.

You will prepare delay impacted programds for the following delay types:

Ronnie WestdorpConstruction Manager, Mettle

Sarrah ran online training for our Western Australia and Northern Territory teams. The feedback from the team was that the courses were really enjoyable, well-paced and gave them a comprehensive understanding of MS Project and programming basics.

Gary DayRegional Manager, CMA Contracting

I did Plannery Academy’s 101 course and immediately signed up for the next two classes. My staff and I have all done all three online modules. Sarrah made the course fun (which we didn’t expect) as well as informative. I have programming experience but was self-taught. Sarrah taught me how to use MS Project so much more efficiently and taught me lots of new skills. This has reduced the amount of time that it takes me to do programs. Thanks Sarrah!

Construction Programming
101 Online Training

An online workshop where you will build your own construction Program from scratch !
Rather than just talking at you, we will teach you how to actually prepare a construction program from scratch. In this online workshop you will follow along with our brilliant trainer to build your own program. She will show you every step that you need to produce a professional program at a standard that can be used for tenders, reporting and management of jobs. Programming is an essential part of Construction Management. Having a good knowledge of Microsoft Project and construction programming will really set you apart from your colleagues!

Workshop format

The workshop starts with a quick tour of MS Project, showing you the features you will need to build your program. Then the fun really begins. You will start to build your program by learning the different ways to add tasks, give the tasks durations and logically link them together. Next, by learning to create summary tasks, you will break up your program into different sections. Now it will really start to take shape. Now you will be able can review the critical path and understand the float in the program. You will establish your working days by allocating a calendar and see where the Practical Completion milestone falls (the most important of all the milestones) You will then add some other important milestones, so it’s easy for your clients to read. All your program needs now, is some formatting to make sure that it is presented with impact. And voila! You have a kick ass program that will win that tender.

How it works

We will send you a template that you will use as a starting point to build your program from. You will follow along with the instructor as they demonstrate, step by step how the program goes together. The instructor stops at regular intervals throughout the workshop to make sure everyone has the exact programs as each other and no man is left behind.You will have the instructor on one screen and MS Project on the other, where you will be building your own program. If you don’t have 2 screens you can just split your screen to have the demo on one side and MS Project on the other.
If you don’t have MS Project, don’t stress. We will hook you up with a free trial.
