New! How to Buy Construction Services
Sooner or later nearly all organizations will need to buy construction work for office, plant, or building. This course will give you the information to help avoid common mistakes that buyers make when they purchase those type of services. Also, it will help individuals learn about construction services contracts when buying services for their home. The course tells you which clauses you should make sure are in the construction contract and which that you should try not to agree to. The topics covered provide a list of subjects that will remind you what to cover with the supplier before you sign any construction service agreement.
The self-running online purchasing agent courses are attended via the Internet. They require up to two or three continuous hours of attendance. Students are initially contacted by email with instructions on how to take the course for which they have registered. Students may attend the online construction services contracts course at any time during the day. This makes these professional business training seminars more convenient for students. All materials are included in the price of the course and will be available online while attending classes. These purchasing agent courses are nonrefundable. Instructions for these courses are usually sent within a few days of registration. Normally, the Society likes to see this type of training for procurement professionals completed within a month of having sent out the instructions. If too much time elapses without a procurement training seminar being completed the student may have to register for it again.
It is each student's responsibility to contact the Society if instructions are not received within the time frames listed above. Failure to do so may result in additional fees. Students can contact the Society at 630-859-0250 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
