- That wraps it up for this course. Don't forget that we have other courses here in the online library that you can watch to learn how to use Microsoft Project. And we have a growing number of courses here on building information modeling that talk about the concept of virtual construction and how to include scheduling elements in your BIM model. And of course we'll continue to grow our online library of construction management courses. If you want to follow me, and find some additional resources, make sure you visit my LinkedIn profile. Thank you for watching my course and I hope to see you again in one of my construction management courses as you continue on your path to be a better construction management professional.
