Description

The $1 trillion infrastructure bill passed in Nov 2021 is the largest infusion of federal investment into infrastructure projects in the United States touching nearly every facet of the American economy. With more projects, come new job opportunities across the board including the planning sector.

Qualified project schedulers are in huge demand today as industries get back to work following a brief pandemic break. Interested in a career in scheduling or project controls, but not sure where to start? Join us as industry experts Michael J. Kaleda (former S.V.P of the MTA), Rajesh Sake (Acting Director Project Controls MTA), and Jeslin Varghese (Director, Project Controls MTA) help us navigate the world of planning, scheduling, and sustainability.

As the adage goes “Prior Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance,” the role of a qualified scheduler is inevitable for prior proper planning.

We will discuss the role of scheduling in project management, understand the importance of creating a schedule, and analyze how it intersects with the sustainability goals of a project. We will identify scheduling tools and highlight the use of Oracle Primavera P6 as a scheduling tool. Together we will explore job opportunities in scheduling and discuss advanced training for professionals.
