This practical training, provided by professional engineers with extensive international experience, explains and illustrates the use of the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction (the “Construction Contract”) and the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build (the “Design-Build Contract”).

Within all FIDIC contracts there will be claims. This training course is designed to provide practical assistance to those working with the FIDIC Contract Conditions in the management of claims and achieving resolution to claims. It is applicable to all the Parties involved within a FIDIC Contract – the Employer, the Contractor, the Engineer, and the DAB Members. By having a professional understanding of the responsibilities and rights of the Parties under a FIDIC contract and the procedures to manage claims, the resolution of claims will be achieved more successfully. It is provided by experienced engineers, who have extensive involvement with FIDIC claims, disputes, adjudications, and arbitration procedures.

This training provides the necessary knowledge for professionals from Government Ministries and Agencies, Private Sector Employers, Consulting Engineers, Contractors, Quantity Surveyors, Architects, Legal Advisers and all involved with the next generation of International Projects. It is particularly important to those involved in preparing or managing infrastructure projects financed under ISPA, as all contracts that are funded by the EU, will be under the FIDIC Conditions of Contract.
