NEC launches new NEC4 Foundation Certificate Programme for Australia

See course details and pricing here.

NEC is delighted to announce the launch of the NEC4 Foundation Certificate Programme in Australia. The programme follows the growing interest in collaborative contracting in Australia, such as Sydney Water selecting the NEC4 suite of contracts to support the rollout of its new procurement strategy, Partnering for Success (P4S), and Main Roads Western Australia successfully trialling NEC for a 16km stretch of the Great Northern Highway.

As the region begins to further adopt NEC as their preferred contract for procurement of works, services and supplies, it is important that we offer support to the NEC practitioners in the region.

The aim of the programme is to enable the adoption of the NEC contract suite in Australia and support the Clients, Contractors and Project Managers to become proficient in the NEC methodology.

The programme is centred on the NEC4: Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), which is designed to stimulate good management of works projects and put collaborative sharing of risk and reward at the heart of modern procurement. Find out more about the contract.

Course details:
Date: 21st-22nd November
Location: Level 5, Barrack Place, 151 Clarence St, Sydney 2000

The two-day training course is structured to educate delegates with minimal NEC knowledge to a working standard with the core contract processes and knowledge. The course will enable delegates to understand the philosophy of NEC, identify different contract strategies using the ECC and define the roles stated within the ECC and their responsibilities.

The course is designed for those preparing or working with the ECC including procurement managers, project managers, contract managers, supervisors, quantity surveyors, consultants, contractors and their supply chain.
