Construction Business Basics (12 weeks, 24 hours)

This 12-week online course covers all the essentials of running your own construction business. With our focus on the Triple Bottom Line (People, Planet, and Prosperity), the consulting team at HELM is ready to help you assess where your company is today, create a vision for the future, and take action to make your business more efficient, productive, and profitable.

Construction Business Basics is designed for small business owners and members of your management team who are looking for a solid grounding in the basics of running a successful construction business. We developed the Basics as an introduction to the most frequently asked questions we get from our consulting clients, in a format that allows us to share the knowledge and resources we’ve gained over the years with multiple companies simultaneously.
