This 1-hour interactive online course provides an overview of the principles of evidence for the construction professional. Construction disputes are resolved by traditional litigation and alternative dispute resolution techniques such as arbitration and mediation. If you are a prime contractor, subcontractor, architect, engineer, construction manager, owner's representative, surety, insurance company, or otherwise involved in construction, it is highly likely that you will be a party to one or more construction disputes during your career. Also, you may be called as a witness to testify in a construction dispute even if you or your company are not parties in the dispute. This course will provide basic information to the construction professional to allow him or her to understand evidentiary concepts used during dispute resolution.
