About course

This two-day course is for people with contract management experience; either those in the role of Engineer to the Contract or those who aspire to this role.

This course is designed to follow-on from IPWEA’s Engineer’s Representative and Contractor’s Representative course, however that is not a pre-requisite.

This more advanced two-day course covers the complex dual 'role' of the Engineer in the administering contracts let under NZS 3910.

It is recommended that you have some previous training in construction contracts. The subtleties of the role are explored in relation to instructions, interpretation, certification, time, cost and quality decision making and for responses to claims and disputes. Exercises, case studies and a multi-choice test are used to bed in knowledge and to share experiences.

Participants will work in groups on practical examples throughout the day, to embed the knowledge.

You will leave this course with a good understanding of construction contracts, and comprehensive notes are provided for future reference. Please ensure you register early to avoid disappointment; this course is limited to 20 delegates.

Presented annually since 2004, this course receives excellent feedback.
