LIVE INSTRUCTOR SESSION: January 17, 2018 (8:30 A.M. start - 2-3 hours)
Blended Learning Session
What is "Blended Learning"?  Blended learning sessions (also known as hybrid or mixed-mode courses) are classes where a portion of the traditional face-to-face instruction is replaced by web-based online learning. This allows the participant to work through most of the training at their own pace, and according to their own schedule.
Description of this Session?

Every project participant makes decisions that have potential legal ramifications and resultant additional costs. This workshop, with an attorney and claims consultant as instructors, will show participants how early knowledge of potential problems is the price of success.
This workshop is the 6th of 6 workshops required for CI's Project Management Certificate program.

Learning Objectives 
    •    Review of potential legal issues which may result from missteps.
    •    Review case law examples, which will serve as foundation for explanation of a variety of construction related issues.
    •    Discuss the importance of considering legal hurdles before making decisions, issuing RFI's, making promises or demanding compliance.
    •    Raise the level of knowledge of all attendees to enable their subsequent identification of legal problems before the damage is done.??
