Due to its breadth of topics, Section 4 requires more strategy than any other part of the LARE. With so much to cover, the webinar material is broken down into manageable portions so you'll know how to focus your energy. We'll review everything from construction details and documents, construction administration, specifications, stormwater management, grading, planting plans, heavy equipment and more! NOTE: Cheryl will re-record all content in December/January to reflect updates to the exam effective April 2017.
