A few words from our tutor on what you can expect from this course

Course Description

The construction industry is becoming increasingly formal and contractual, and it has never been more important for everyone involved in the industry to understand the risks, obligations and administration requirements contained in construction contracts.  

This  course will provide delegates with a comprehensive understanding of the legal jargon contained in the various types of contracts used in the construction industry and more importantly, what they mean for the day of administration of contracts on site. It will focus on industry specific issues and the principles that underpin contracts in the construction sector.
