The Owner Training Institute encompasses 13 Owner Training Courses, Live and On-Demand Webinars, and discounts on Lorman Education products.

Owner Training Courses

Over the years COAA has heard from many construction project owners about the need for training - training for owners' project managers - from the owner's perspective. The wait is over - Training for Owners, by Owners is here!  COAA established a team of construction industry experts to develop a full training curriculum for construction project owners. 

The full curriculum consists of 13 Owner-focused courses. Class size is limited to encourage interactivity and will be led by a three-person team of instructors - an owner, designer, and contractor - to provide the various perspectives. Most of the courses are available now! The full suite of courses will be available in 2018.
