Course Description

This course is an education offering to the global community of infrastructure/right of way professionals. Its purpose and content plans are centered on members of the Project Team with specific emphasis to the infrastructure professional/right of way agent. This course is an introduction to industry specific disciplines. Infrastructure professionals/right of way agents who typically participate on a project team are from the following disciplines: environment, engineering/survey, appraisal, negotiation/mitigation, and relocation assistance. Law is included because it is a vital component of the infrastructure professional/right of way agent’s responsibility to prepare legal documents and obtain the correct signatures of vesting property owners to ensure the document is legal and enforceable. This course provides an awareness of the disciplines involved in infrastructure/right of way projects and the importance of a team approach to the work.
