Course Description

COURSE:  WENG 500 Cost Engineering

OBJECTIVE:  For each student to comprehend and implement Tri-Service policy and analyze cost estimates to more effectively plan, program, budget and execute Air Force infrastructure requirements.

DESCRIPTION:  This course prepares students for the role of reviewer/approver in the Air Force Engineer project programming process. This role involves analyzing estimates from the perspective of Basis of Estimate, the actual costs involved and the risks involved. The course does review material to be tested on the DoD Certified Cost Engineer exam. Graduates who have an approved application from the Air Force Life Cycle Cost Engineer will be eligible to take the Level 2 (DoD) certification necessary to review and certify project cost data at the headquarters level.

Note: While the course can introduce topics necessary for the exam, substantial self-study will be necessary for students unfamiliar with the concepts prior to taking the exam.

PRIMARY AUDIENCE:  Reviewers/Approvers of project programming packages with respect to cost. Target audience will have completed WENG 400, be preparing for the Tri-Service Cost Certification, and have a minimum experience of two cumulative years in a cost engineering role.

SECONDARY AUDIENCE:  N/A

GRADE:   No grade requirement

PREREQUISITES:  WENG 400 must be complete prior to attending.

Recommended: The Air Force review/approval policy requires a minimum of 10 years of experience in construction project management. While this course will not restrict students on this basis as they may be preparing for a future review/approval role, the course does target seasoned, experienced design and construction professionals. New design and construction professionals have found themselves quickly lost.
