Who should take this course?

Trade Contractors, General Contractors, owners, anyone involved in contract administration, and allied industry professionals who want to learn more about trade contracts.

What will you learn?

Subcontracts are becoming more and more confusing and onerous. As a Trade Contractor, it’s in your best interest to have a clear understanding of your contract before a problem threatens your business rather than after, when it’s too late.

In this class we’ll be using the CCA 53 – A Trade Contractor’s Guide and Checklist to Construction Contracts, to help you identify common clauses that can negatively impact your rights and obligations.

We’ll also be taking a hands-on approach using actual subcontracts in class. Using a green, amber and red-light system, you’ll learn which subcontract clauses to be on the look-out for when reviewing contracts.

We’ll cover the checklist of significant clauses identified in the CCA 53 document, including:

  • Design responsibility
  • Performance specifications
  • Conduit or flow-down provisions
  • Scope of subcontract work
  • Payment
  • Insurance
  • Protection of work
  • Warranties
  • Temporary site facilities

Course fee includes:  Lunch, digital certificate provided upon successful course completion, and course material provided in-class.
