The ECC Supervisor Accreditation is designed to equip delegates with the skills necessary to be able to fulfil the role of a Supervisor using the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC). The programme is part of unique suite of accreditations for those undertaking managerial roles within NEC3 projects and contracts.

Acting independently of the Project Manager, Supervisors are responsible for monitoring, testing and defects, and checking compliance with the Works Information.

It is essential that those undertaking this role are sufficiently experienced, so they can understand and identify all its requirements. Depending on the size and nature of the works, an employer might need to appoint a clerk of works or inspector for this role.

This programme is supported by the Institute of Clerks of Works and Construction Inspectorate of GB (ICWCI).
