FIDIC Contracts Management course is designed to provide practical guidance to those involved in the management or administration of projects where the use of FIDIC forms of contracts is required.
Although FIDIC contracts often seem relatively straightforward, unforeseen circumstances can quickly cause things to become complicated. That’s why it’s essential to have an advanced-level understanding of the many fine-print contractual details that have the potential to become expensive legal disputes.
That is why we developed this advanced course that will take an in-depth look at how to effectively administer and manage the 1999 & 2017 Editions of the FIDIC Red and Yellow Book contracts to meet your obligations, as well as the specified deliverables during the execution phase of the project.
We have designed this FIDIC Contracts Management training course to take you through the entire lifecycle of a project and include all of the contract administration tasks that you need to be aware of every step of the way.
The course will also equip you with the skills that you need to determine the inherent risks associated with each stage during the lifecycle of the project under a FIDIC contract.
Using a variety of case studies, we will also take an in-depth look at the recent developments about the interpretation of the contracts and how this impacts the day-to-day management and administration of the agreement, as well as the seemingly simple provisions that can potentially create legal nightmares.
Besides, this course will explore and incorporate all of the technical and procedural competencies and will cover in detail the dealings between the contracting parties and concerned stakeholders no matter if you represent the Employer/Client, Consultant or Contractor.
The course will enable participants to gain confidence in working with these documents, whether they represent employers, consultants or contractors.
This is official FIDIC program.
