This self-paced distance learning, Mentored Email™ course, is designed to provide students with an understanding of the power of using Earned Value as a practical control and monitoring technique to deliver added value and insight from their overall project control process. The approach adopted is to assume everyone uses some form of software for EV, therefore rote learning of the formulae is pointless, the software gets this correct. What’s needed is an appreciation of the terms used, the purpose of the calculations, and the value of the information created by the tools.
At the end of the course, trainees will understand the benefits of using Earned Value as a practical control and monitoring technique designed to provide added value and insight to their overall project control process and appreciate the steps necessary to implement an effective EV system in their organization. See the contents of the five modules below.
Who should participate: Project and program managers, PMO staff, project controls staff and engineers, schedulers and project team members.
Trainees will receive a comprehensive set of course notes and references to assist in the implementation of EVM in their businesses.

Mosaic's One-on-One Mentored Email™ distance learning methodology is designed as a cost effective, 'low overhead' email based delivery option for busy project team members. The modules are designed to step you through the course work in manageable sections. Most people will aim at one module per week but you can go quicker or slower, the course is entirely self-paced.
Each module includes reference materials, followed by test questions and feedback on the answers provided. The three components of each module are designed to work together to reinforce the student's learning. Regular feedback is provided to each trainee showing their overall score and their score against each of the topics. This helps highlight areas of strength and areas needing more study. Mosaic's telephone mentoring helps trainees ask any questions they may have and to provide additional guidance as needed.
Typical Times per Module - most people average around 3 Hrs per module Each module includes:
The course provides access to approximately 100 questions. Each question has a complete answer, by reviewing the answers, trainees learn why some options are correct and why others are wrong. Mosaic's scoring matrix lets each trainee know the topics needing more work and where they are comfortably on track to implement EVM in their organization.
Note:- All Mentored Email™ courses require the trainee to have access to an email system capable of receiving 'locked' PDF and Excel files (the 'lock' prevents alterations - printing is always enabled).
