About the course

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

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.

Not just a lecture, participants will also work in groups on practical examples.

You will leave with a good understanding of the topics listed above, and comprehensive notes are provided for future reference. Please ensure that you register early to avoid disappointment - course is limited to 20 participants.

This course has been presented annually since 2004, and feedback has been excellent.

Who should attend?

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

Participants are recommended to have had some previous training in construction contracts, such as the IPWEA NZ Engineer’s Representative and Contractor’s Representative course, or similar.

Please note:  In the unlikely event of date postponement, IPWEA NZ recommend booking flexible travel.
