Construction: Every thing from ground breaking to finished product. Our construction experts will help you in the design, the various products and trades, and all related construction issues. These courses will help you in choosing the type of construction, the assistance in determining actual costs, and seeing your final product in the ground. We will also cover construction issues relating to conversions as well.
Feasibility: On every new project, the feasibility should be determined in order for you, the developer, to elevate your level of confidence in the new effort. Our courses will help you in getting the facts behind “making the deal work”. The issues associated with the necessary Due Diligence in the purchase of an established store will also be covered.
Finance: The ever changing financial markets and conditions can determine your ability to acquire the right financing for your project. Our experts will cover the terminology, the requirements and the ways to acquire the best solution to your financial needs, whether it is for a new project or a re-finance of your existing facility.
Management: The vast array of management related issues will be covered in several sections of our management course load. Marketing, accounting, auditing, preventative maintenance, ancillary products and more will be addressed in this section.
General Interest: This section of courses will cover a wide variety of topics and will give you some “out of the box” ideas to think about. These courses will give you other ideas of how to make your self storage facility successful.
Legal: Knowing what you can and cannot do is vital to your success. Our legal experts will dissect the various legal issues a self storage owner, manager and even customer face, and how to deal them in the proper format. Timely coverage of current legal trends, court cases and legislative and administrative topics will also be covered.
This should offer another method of getting information and education to people in a convenient way. It should be interesting to watch it develop.
