FALLS CHURCH, Va. - Twenty-one business owners, operations managers, project managers, estimators, and superintendents spent four intensive days at the Plumbing-Heating-Cooling Contractors (PHCC) Educational Foundation's Essentials of PHC Project Management course. The session, held in Fort Worth, Texas, demonstrated to attendees how pre-planning and a commitment to supporting field labor can drastically reduce wasted time and save their businesses stunning amounts of money.

"Managers working on the office side of a contracting business need to realize that making money in this industry depends completely on how well they can support their field labor," said Kirk Alter, director of the foundation's management courses and lead instructor for the Essentials course.

The next Essentials of Project Management course will be held Jan. 4-7, 2006, in Lansdowne, Va.
