Advanced Negotiating Skills in the Mechanical Contracting Industry

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND AND EXTENDED!

*Highest-Rated Course of 2018 by MCA Members!*

In an increasingly commoditized market, negotiation needs to be your competitive advantage. Each day, your company strikes deals with owners, design professionals, subcontractors, and vendors. You discuss new contracts, change orders, value engineering, design issues and project buyouts. Every negotiation requires a unique approach to facilitate the outcomes or responses that you desire.

  • Learn to recognize how demeanor and perception affect your ability to defend and grow your margins through negotiation
  • Take part in situational case studies that simulate various mechanical construction topics

This course is designed to benefit the needs of project managers, estimators, or anyone involved in negotiation processes.
