OTI Courses and Descriptions

ABOUT OTI COURSES

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 is scheduled to be offered in the fall of 2021.

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

VIRTUAL OTI

The (12) OTI courses are designed to be delivered in person, with a maximum class size of 25 to ensure a low instructor/attendee ratio.  With COVID-19 limiting the ability to gather in person, COAA has developed virtual offerings for two of the courses and is working on a third:

  • The Design Process Management course, normally a full day and offering 8.0 CEUs or Learning Units, is available for virtual delivery as a 4-hour course offering 4.0 CEUs/LUs.
  • The Project Closeout course, normally a full day and offering 8.0 CEUs or Learning Units, is available for virtual delivery as a 4-hour course offering 4.0 CEUs/LUs.
  • The Cost Management course is in being fully converted to a virtual offering and is expected to be ready for delivery in early 2022.
