Project Management for EPC


The “Project Management for EPC Projects” program is targeting project managers, project leaders, engineers and construction managers who are working in EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) projects for industrial plants, such as power plants, refineries, oil and gas and the chemical industry. The content of the training is based on the “Project Management Handbook for EPC” published by our partner Project Team from Germany.  As this is an advanced project management training, some basic knowledge of project management (PMI®, PMBOK) will be helpful to fully benefit from this training.


This training is focused on managers and employees working in engineering/ procurement/ construction of industrial plants, such as power plants, chemical plants, refineries or oil and gas.

However, the content can also be applied to any other major EPC construction project. Some EPC experience and/or project management background will be helpful to take full benefit from the training sessions, although not mandatory for registration.
