Your Details


We are now offering this course as Virtual Delivery - click here to find out more.


This programme is designed to equip delegates with the skills necessary to be able to manage a project under an NEC3 Contract, with specific reference to role and importance of the Project Manager under the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC).

The programme is part of a unique suite of accreditations for those undertaking managerial roles within NEC3 projects and contracts.

Under the ECC, the Employer is represented by the Project Manager. Being a project manager in itself is a skill. Understanding a whole range of competing interests and balancing these against the need to deliver a high quality project on time, to budget and to standard is a difficult task. Coupled with the legal, not to mention financial implications, of delivering a project incorrectly the task can seem quite daunting.

This training programme fuses together the skills required of a project manager with those technical skills
required by the NEC.
