Overview

Learn practical skills in project risk management to foresee and prevent events that can derail projects.

Events that cause projects to fail or suffer delays are almost always predictable and preventable. Risk management is about learning how to identify, assess and mitigate these risks.

In this course, you'll use a real-world project to learn about common risks in engineering, construction and operations projects. Using this case study, you'll apply practical skills to predict, prevent and solve problems.

After completing this course, you'll be able to better support risk management and use a risk register.
