Project Compliance Data Management will build on facility documentation control to define construction project artifacts (data and documents) generated over the lifecycle of a construction project determined by its configuration, quality and stakeholder requirements.
Planning and executing construction projects entails a three-fold framework to balance compliance, efficiency and capacity requirements to attain project excellence. Project configuration is a proactive effort to lay out the project phases/stages, decision gates, change management and risk mitigation processes.
Project quality is the ongoing surveillance of engineering, procurement and construction, and the respective data and documents these three stages of a project generate. Project stakeholders have demands for a project to track information – stakeholders can be government related (ABSA), standards bodies (ASME, CSA), internal, or the customer (owner-operator, “the public”).
Document managers who intend to work in construction related industries will benefit from an understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of project configuration, quality and stakeholder management, and how these processes initiate data and documents.
- This course does not have prerequisites, students must however meet the recommendations and requirements in the Notes section along with any proficiencies identified below.
Courses are instructor-led, face-to-face and may be delivered in three formats:
- In Class - all classes are taught in a computer lab.
- Online - all classes are taught synchronously in real-time.
- Blended - delivery is both in a computer lab and synchronously online, alternating weekly.
It is the students responsibility to carefully read the course section content below to know which delivery options are available for the course they are registering into.
- Registrations within 24 hours of course start time must be made by phone (403-220-2988).

Recommendations and Requirements
Courses are 30 hours and are scheduled to be completed in either 5 weeks or 10 weeks. Generally, 5-week courses have two classes per week, and 10-week courses have one class per week.
Courses may be delivered in class, online, or blended (both in class and online). All delivery formats will use Desire2Learn (D2L) and Adobe Connect Meeting (ACM) tools to varying degrees and it is the students responsibility to ensure they are comfortable with these tools prior to the start of the first class.
Students are encouraged to read Student Online Learning Resources to determine the delivery format that will best meet their learning needs.
- Students familiar with D2L and ACM from previous course work require no further introduction to these learning tools.
- Students who register into an in class only course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take the necessary time to fully explore these learning tools prior to the start of class.
- Students who register into an online or blended course section and who are unfamiliar with D2L and ACM learning tools are recommended to take BMC 352 Learning Online.
For online and blended delivery, students should have access to their own computer with required software, Internet connection, a headset with speakers and microphone, webcam, and a monitor large enough to display multiple applications (or the use of two monitors). Students should test their environment prior to the start of class to ensure everything is working properly.
- There is no special software required.
- There are no textbooks required.
It is strongly recommended that students attend every class. It is the responsibility of the student to communicate potential absenteeism to the instructor.
