Short Description:
Most business owners have heard of a business plan, but few know about, or understand the importance of, a strategic plan. Consequently, their businesses commonly fail to achieve the success they envisioned. More disappointing? Owners struggle throughout the life of their businesses, putting out fires but never achieving the success they dreamed of. This course provides an overview of the strategic planning process: who prepares it, what makes it different from a business plan, when do you need a strategic plan, why it drives success, and how strategic planning is similar to other planning contractors already know how to do. A strong construction business is able to successfully complete challenging projects and survive a challenging construction environment. A well-developed strategic plan is fundamental to a strong construction business.

Short Description:
Transporting supplies and equipment is an essential part of the construction industry. Electronic logging devices (ELDs) have made it possible for a business to monitor nearly all aspects of a truck’s daily activities. For most businesses using commercial trucks, having access to an ELD’s record is not just prudent, it is mandatory. This course is designed to explain the regulations governing use of ELDs and provide practical insight and advice regarding best practices.

Short Description:
Frustrated contractors trying to collect for their work often see, mistakenly, mechanics’ liens as their most powerful collection tool. Mechanics’ liens can be used to collect, just as a nail can be driven with a lineman’s pliers, but they are frequently not the best tool for the job. Students will gain a clear understanding of how best to use mechanics’ liens to help them collect, and how to avoid throwing good money after bad. This course is designed to help contractors know when it is best to spend money on a mechanics’ lien, and when other collection tools are a better choice.
