Short Description:
This course looks at two of the more complicated components of basement construction including problems with how many basements are built today and how to build them better with proper capillary, air, water, and thermal control layers. Finishing an existing basement is even more challenging, and we’ve all seen examples of how badly it can fail. This course will provide a best practice solution to finishing existing spaces, so they are as durable and efficient as possible.

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.
