The materials and instruction presented are designed to teach / familiarize owners, managers, supervisors and project managers with: construction contracts and contract law; liabilities and responsibilities both in the office and the field; compiling and submitting proper extras and claims; ways and means to avoid conflict in contracts, with owners, trades, and labour. A manual, summarizing course and documents used in the industry, is included. We would also want to consider some form of certification/evaluation of participant knowledge aside from simply a certificate of attendance. We could likely approach the Gold seal Program and arrange to have it Gold Seal Certified.
