There are many different facets of knowledge necessary to run a contracting business, and this information will take up a good chunk of the course. The management of a company is split into sections; for example, organizational and financial management are covered in separate sections to better understand each. Learning how to create and manage a well-run contracting business will lessen problems in the long run and give your company a good reputation, saving you both time and money.
General information includes the topics of estimating, bidding, contracts, and liens, among others.

You may even learn something you didn't know before.
