“The subject matter covered throughout the course was displayed in a manner that was easy to understand. As this is a topic which people may not already have a clear understanding of the subject matter. The course provides insight into what defines ethics and how certain practices can be put to practical use in the industry. The key message of Construction Ethics was providing an understanding of what actually constitutes ethics and the definition of the core principles of ethical behaviour in the industry. Group discussions and interactive role playing was used to highlight these behaviours as well as the decision making that reinforces these principles. Overall, CANS courses are always informative, and I have consistently had a positive experience with the organization overall. The instructors selected are both friendly and knowledgeable.”
