6 Hours

The Training Program Description and Objectives and Outcome:
This training program was specifically designed and created to support British Columbians that maybe employed or have been employed in the construction sector to gain technical skills in response to technological advancements and essential skills to obtain good-paying jobs and increase job security,
This program aims to provide absolutely high-value and high-quality corporate training to help employers in construction industry to train their current or future employees to meet their immediate needs of the business and the participant’s job, to help employers build up an agile, skilled, and resilient workforce which is essential for strong, sustainable and balanced growth with a strategic competitive advantage for productivity and innovation
Upon completion of the following modules
We will discuss how to recognize the overarching opportunity and impacts of the BCESC compliance process on project delivery approaches, including the value of early-stage design and the use of the Integrated Design Process.
We will discuss how to adjust the project schedule to account for coordinating supply chains and subcontractors in the context of the enclosure and mechanical systems and the compliance process associated with the BCESC.
We will discuss how to consider how the project can approach capacity development through inclusive training that considers the diverse range of trades/subcontractors entering the industry.
We will discuss how to determine the steps required to adjust current building processes to better integrate the BCESC compliance processes.
We will discuss how to coordinate the use of the Integrated Design Process in BCESC project delivery to manage costs and trade-offs
So ultimately, builders would be able to recognize the design and construction factors contributing to the success or failure of a building project in meeting its goals such as meeting BCESC requirements, staying on budget and on schedule, and maintaining working relationships with their team members and clients.
We will discuss how to set out expectations for team members around the timing of on-site checks including testing and inspections, interfacing with building official(s), and filling out and checking the compliance form.
We will discuss how to align project goals across team members to reduce miscommunication and set up appropriate support for team members including feedback and incentive structures for meeting quality and compliance targets.
We will discuss how to prepare safeguards and contingencies to mitigate and respond to missed BCESC requirements such as failed airtightness tests and energy modeling results
So ultimately, learners would be able to integrate broad project management and QA/QC tools that help lower the risk of failing to meet project goals.
Upon completion of this module, builders would have a better understanding of the ways in which the builder can manage the project, in cooperation with the rest of the project team and the trades, to achieve the expected performance levels.
the successful participant (student) will gain the right mix of knowledge and skills to adapt to the labour market’s changing job requirements, to be well equipped to respond to the evolving demands of the labour market
The intended outcome and result of training will be improved job-related skills leading to increased job security and /or a better job for a current employee of the applicant employer and /or a job for an unemployed person
