This course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the administration of NZS 3910 contracts, as well as potential errors and misunderstandings to avoid. Comprehensive notes are provided for future reference. More than a lecture, at regular intervals this course involves working in groups on solutions to practical problems  in contract administration.

Both Engineer’s Representative training and Contractor’s Representative training are delivered in this course, because a mutual understanding of the two roles is important for each side, and many participants may alternate between these two roles during their career.

Course Content

Updated in 2018, this course now covers the 2013 revisions of NZS 3910 conditions of contract, and publication of the new NZS 3916 for design and construct contracts.

Differences between the old and new versions of the standard are also covered, which is beneficial to organisations working on contracts let under NZS3910:2003.

Well received by hundreds of participants from local authority, consultant, contractor and subcontracting organisations, this course is one of IPWEA NZ’s most popular.

Who should attend

Those in the role of either Engineer's Representative or Contractor’s Representative under NZS3910 construction contracts, and those who aspire to these roles.
