Owner Training Institute
The Owner Training Institute® (OTI) plays a major role in COAA's overall educational mission. It includes (12) training courses design specifically for Owners, live and on-demand webinars, (future) “Learning Bites,” and discounts on Lorman Education products.
Owner Training Institute® Courses
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 is scheduled to be offered in the fall of 2021.
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.
