Owner Training Institute
The Owner Training Institute® (OTI) plays a major role in COAA's overall educational mission. It includes in-person training courses designed specifically for Owners, live and on-demand webinars, “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 Owner Training Institute (OTI) scratches that it with valuable, interactive training "for Owners, by Owners."
The OTI curriculum includes 14 Owner-centric 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 facilitated by COAA's signature three-person team of instructors - Owner, design professional, and builder - allowing participants to benefit from all three perspectives.
The two newest courses - "Lean For Owners" and "Human Skills" - were jointly developed with industry partners ... the Lean Construction Institute (LCI) and Ripple Intent.
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.
“I can’t tell you how valuable it is to learn and interact with people who have been there and understand … really well done and gave me plenty of ideas that I brought back to Missouri. I also felt good about the emphasis on collaboration and the underlying message of fairness.”
