Welcome to JV eStudies

Gain skills and solve problems using courses and information delivered at your convenience.

This program is an initiative of PJVA to provide our valued members with a dynamic environment to access learning opportunities.

Joint Venture
Agreements Courses

The PJVA Agreements Courses are designed to familiarize learners with the types of joint venture agreements used in the industry:

  • Construction, Ownership and Operating Agreements
  • Unit Agreements
  • Service Agreements

In this three course series, learners are introduced to the agreement, to its purpose and to the business issues that these agreements are designed to address.

The lessons include "real-life" industry examples of business issues. Exercises ask the learner to discover how the agreement deals with them by consulting online versions of the appropriate agreement.
