Construction Mediation: A Brief Overview - Beginner

This course will provide basic information to the construction professional to allow him or her to understand the mediation process.
There will be a brief multiple-choice quiz at the end of each scenario. You must have Flash Player Version 7 or higher to view some parts of this course. We also recommend you view this course in Internet Explorer.
