NEW from NEC: Become an Accredited NEC3 ECC Project Manager

The only NEC3-specific accreditation course available.

About the course:

This is a blended learning advanced level course that brings the role of the ECC Project Manager to life. Other NEC3 training courses examine what the project manager has to do, this course is the first to focus on how it should be done. On completion, delegates will not only be able master the technical details of the ECC but they will also be able to deliver them in such a way that other Parties will clearly understand.

Ideal for:

All those who are, or are looking to become an ECC Project Manager: Existing Project Managers | Quantity Surveyors | Civil Engineers | Construction Managers
  • The NEC Gold Standard – Peer reviewed and delivered by industry experts
  • Facilitates more efficiently run ECC projects for all Parties – By equipping delegates with effective ‘how to’ skills for ECC project management, problems can be avoided altogether, rather being solved only after they have occurred
  • Not just a checklist – Through interactive case studies, delegates are given ‘real tools’ to execute their jobs, rather than just a framework of documents and checklists
  • Official NEC Accreditation, the first of its kind- On successful completion of the course, delegates will be an Accredited NEC3 Project Manager, with specific reference to the NEC3 ECC

All delegates are required to bring a copy of the NEC3: Engineering & Construction Contract and Guidance Notes with them on this course.

  • Construction Managers

Outline Programme

This course will allow delegates to understand what the responsibilities of the Project Manager are and, more importantly, why there are so important.

  • Successful completion of the course will result in accreditation as an NEC3 Project Manager. You will be able to demonstrate you understand the key processes crucial to the NEC and how to apply them to an ECC project.Taking delegates from project start up to project close, the course will look at the procedures as described in the ECC, the purpose of those procedures and the implications for not following them correctly as well as ensuring delegates are familiar with the interdependencies of the various documents required by the ECC. Understanding the relationship between the Contract Data, the Programme, the Works Information and a strong communication procedure is absolutely vital  to the successful execution of any ECC project. In-depth knowledge of the process, terms, functions and interdependencies is the key to being a successful ECC Project Manager and you will have the opportunity on this course to understand not just what those processes are, but why they should be followed to achieve a successful outcome.Dealing with crucial issues such as Time, Quality, Cost, Fee, Risk, Compensation Events and Early Warnings, the course will give attendees opportunities to work through both contract based and non-contract based scenarios with the intention of equipping them with key tools to be able to implement in any ECC project roles
