Your Details


Offered as an intensive two day training course, this programme has been specifically developed to align with the CIOB 5th edition of the ‘Code of Practice for Project Management for Construction and Development’, which includes the BIM mandate and the environmental mandate.

Effective project management involves the assessment and management of risk. It represents the overall planning, co-ordination and control of a project from inception to completion and aims to meet the client's requirements by delivering a project to specification, on time and to budget.

The programme is ideal for those who will use the code of practice in the workplace and also those who wish to understand best practice in project and construction management.

This is a highly interactive training course, with exercises based on case studies as follows:

  • Project Manager selection criteria
  • Leadership diagnostic
  • Produce and present a Project Mandate
  • Client Objectives and Business Case
  • Appraising the feasibility of three options
  • Prepare Project Brief and Stakeholder Plan
  • Causes of Project Failure
  • Risk Management Plan

Additional material
To aid learning, those who attend this training course will receive a complimentary copy of the book, Code of Practice for Project Managers for Construction and Development (ISBN: 1-4051-0309-4).

This training course has been mapped to:
  • UK-SPEC Competence C1: Plan for effective project implementation
  • ICE Key Attribute 3A: Ability to plan for effective project implementation


Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.
