This short course aims to equip the practicing thermographer to make an informed decision about whether to agree to resolve business disputes by any means other than litigation, and under what conditions such an agreement might not be enforceable in court. The costs, benefits, and fundamentals of alternative / complementary dispute resolution methods will be surveyed, contrasted with civil litigation, and measured against constitutional standards. If you ever had pause when considering a mediation or arbitration clause in your contract, and wondered what rights you might be giving up, this is the seminar you’ve been waiting for.
This course will enable you to:
- understand the meaning of arbitration and litigation
- make an informed decision about resolving business disputes by any means other than litigation
- recognize the costs, benefits, and fundamentals of alternative and/or complementary dispute resolution methods
- determine what rights you may be giving up by choosing mediation or arbitration over litigation
This material is intended for anyone wishing to better understand litigation versus arbitration as it pertains to contracts. Course is designed for in-house and contract thermographers as well as PPM and PDM professionals.
