Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson (JMT), with support from the Chesapeake Bay Trust (CBT), the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network (CBFN) is offering a Watershed Restoration Project Management Training Program to be held in the Spring of 2016.
This training will provide an in depth overview for the project process from inception of the idea, to signing off on the constructed project, and everything in between. The instructors will emphasize the key issues organizations may face by relating them to real project experiences dealing with various owners, clients and agencies, as well as providing vast knowledge of the current regulatory landscape. This training program is aimed at organizations interested in increasing their ability to manage large scale ($100,000 and above) watershed restoration projects. The main goal of this training program is for staff of organizations to gain a new level of confidence to take on larger projects by providing them with a working knowledge of the technical side of these projects and immersing them to the intricacies of the project management process. The training participants will be able to walk out of the program better equipped to manage and implement projects, compete for funds and understand the resources needed to accomplish their goals.
THIS TRAINING IS COMPLETELY FREE! But competitive…so don’t delay and apply now!
If interested in sending a representative of your organization to the training, please apply by Friday November 20th. The training will consist of two 2-day training sessions. The first 2-day training session is scheduled for March 21st and 22nd 2016, and the second 2-day training session is T.B.D. There will also be the ability to participate in mentorship/job shadowing opportunities as part of the training program.
