Overview of Training Curriculum 

As restoration professionals continue to implement larger projects (>$100,000) and manage greater numbers of projects per year, the Trust has recognized the need for training to support this growing demand. The PM Training 201 course will provide an in-depth look at processes involved that allow these large-scale projects to be permitted, designed, advertised, and constructed on time and on budget. This training course will build on the materials presented in the previous training course (the PM Training 101 course materials can be found here: https://cbtrust.org/project-management-training/) as well as covering new material focused on increasing your knowledge and skills during the contracting, construction, and certification phases of the project. This training is intended for organizations that have been actively involved in constructing and managing large-scale (typically $100,000 and above) watershed restoration projects over the past few years or those who are anticipating a large-scale project in the upcoming year. Please complete the application by March 15th to register for this training and to inform he training staff about your needs so you can tailor the course materials to support your restoration work.
