"It was structured and it felt tailored to all levels of experience within the offshore wind industry"

James Hakim, PMO Analyst

The course and its contents were of great value to me; I praise it highly and will recommend it to colleagues and friends in the industry! It was structured and it felt tailored to all levels of experience within the offshore wind industry. I will be referring to the written content in the weeks to come while developing the CCP for the project I'm currently working on. It's been a great head start! Thank you RECOA.

About the Renewable Change Control Management Course

Change control on renewable projects plays a key role in the developer’s organization.  It requires setting up change control processes and governance, facilitating the process, running change control boards, and proactively ensuring that no changes from the original project budget, schedule, and scope are missed. 

When changes are not properly controlled on a project, they cost time money, and resources that can negatively affect project outcomes. In this course, we explore not only the theory but also case studies and examples.

General candidates for the RCCM course include those who interact with change control management on projects working for developers, contractors, and suppliers. This can include roles such as project managers, engineers, procurement specialists, and other project team members. 

Candidates for the RCCM role will either come from a technical background or have worked in large infrastructure projects and can quickly understand how changes might impact other stakeholders. They have excellent communication skills and help facilitate communication among stakeholders. They must be structured and organised in their approach, but also capable of applying wisdom to a given situation to ensure that change control remains practical and easy.

While framed from the perspective of a Renewable Change Control Manager, the content of this course is directly relevant for Developers as it will:

  1. Introduce them to the fundamentals of change control management.
  2. Provide insight into how the Renewable Change Control Manager role fits into a Developer organization's processes.
  3. Allow Developer's to infer the relationship between the Project Team and that of the Renewable Change Control Manager.


**These chapters are indirectly relevant to Joint Venture Partners, Contractors, and Suppliers as they provide a window into the structure of a Developer organisation and how their Project Team supports the Change Control process. By understanding the internal decision-making process, they can gather how to best engage with the Change Control process, anticipate the Developer's needs, and facilitate communication. 

What to Expect from this Specialist Course

It deep dives into the basic knowledge an RCCM needs to have but also into some of the skills that take an RCCM from average to excellent. The course is broken down into chapters with various content presentation methods and activities to assist your learning journey.

Rather than being a theory-only course, we give you many examples and work with scenarios that help you understand how RCCM skills are applied.

We aim to instil confidence in your understanding of how change control works in offshore wind projects.
