Classroom courses have been suspended in compliance with social distancing guidelines

MMI Training is now available via live webinars.  These are not web-based slide shows.  Seminars are live, and interactive, with instructor present to respond to questions or clarification.

At MMI we remain convinced that classroom training is the most effective way to learn.  In extraordinary times, however, we don’t believe the proper response is to quit and go away.  Live webinar instruction is the best option available to us, and for those who don’t want to quit either we are determined to help you make progress.

This site is for contractors from all building trades.   We exist to help you get past the distractions of business administration and back on the job of getting things built.  We teach the basics of running a business in quick, common sense courses that focus on the particular needs of the building industry.  We do that because whether you are builder, a general or a specific trade contractor, the demands of general management can hold you back.  You lose time on confusing and unfamiliar tasks instead of adding value with the skills you know best.

The complexities of running a business are here to stay and they are more demanding for the building trades than for most other industries.  You can’t simply ignore them, but to tackle them you might need common sense answers to some straightforward questions.  Construction Business Basics is a short path to understanding the business side of the construction industry.  We help you get those common sense answers while focussing on the one question that matters most:

How does your company benefit from any of it?

Because ultimately this is only a business when something is being built, and not too many buildings have gone up by pushing more paper around.

We invite you to look over the material on this website.  See what works for you and when you really want to get down to business look into the available courses.  If you have questions or comments please let us have them.  We will get back to you, but we promise you this:  We’ll only contact you if you ask us to.  We don’t track visitors to the website.  We don’t share any information about you.   We don’t put you on newsletters, email blasts or any other distribution lists.  So feel free to look around and see what you can accomplish
