Unit aim: This unit is designed to meet the needs of construction managers, to give them knowledge of managing sub-contractors.

This unit is divided into an Introduction and 3 study sections.


We strive to ensure that our Study Units are up-to-date, however Legislation and Forms of Contract are continually changing; which means that some references within the Study Units have yet to be amended.
