ABOUT OTI COURSES

The curriculum includes 14 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.

We encourage you to explore the courses in our digital catalog and upcoming offerings in the table below. 


Check out the monthly series of fundamental topics aimed at emerging pros aged 35 and younger ... but useful for even the most experienced project leaders.  Entirely FREE for anyone!  Visit HERE for more information.

“We came back into the offices yesterday and raved about how informative the class was … we would like to have your team come to Toronto and present to our executive team.”
