Owner Training Institute
The Owner Training Institute® (OTI) plays a major role in COAA's overall educational mission. It includes (12) training courses designed specifically for Owners, live and on-demand webinars, (future) “Learning Bites,” and discounts on Lorman Education products.
COAA heard for years from its members and other facility Owners about the need for project management training for its leadership and project management staff. The wait is over - Training For Owners, By Owners is here!
The curriculum consists of 12 Owner-focused courses, focused on Core Skills, Process Management, Project Delivery, and Team Selection/Procurement. To maximize the learning experience, attendance is capped at 25, and courses are led by COAA's signature three-person team of instructors - an Owner, design professional, and builder - allowing participants to gain a great understanding of each party's perspective.
COAA is working with the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) on a 13th OTI course - "Lean For Owners" - which will be offered in October of 2021 at the LCI Congress in Phoenix.
COAA’s Owner Training Institute® (OTI) strives to educate Owners – specifically project managers, their supervisors, and other project stakeholders – and empower them to more successfully deliver capital improvement projects.
