NEC3 to NEC4 ECC Project Manager Accreditation extension
This course is restricted to those who are already accredited NEC3 Project Managers. If you are not eligible for this course at the time of booking AND on the start date of the course, your booking will be cancelled and your fee returned minus a 15% admin fee.
It is one day of tutor-led training, which includes group working on case studies, to draw out the different processes in the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) compared to the NEC3 ECC.
There is also an online assessment of multiple choice questions which will be distributed after the sessions.
Successful completion of this will give the delegate NEC4 Project Manager Accreditation, which is valid for 5 years.
Please note that applications for the inclusion to the ICE Register for accredited NEC Professionals will no longer be accepted from the 1st of February 2023. A new NEC Register will be live in Q2 2023. No action is required from current NEC4 accredited Professionals to transition to the new register.

This training course starts at 09:00 and finishes at 17:00 with refreshment breaks mid-morning and afternoon, plus lunch. All timings, except the start time, are approximate and may be adjusted to suit natural breaks in the lesson.
The course follows the structure and pattern of the full NEC3 Project Manager Accreditation course, concentrating on those areas where the role or detail has changed in the NEC4.
In this way, the differences between the two editions are identified and the differences in duties and responsibilities are made clear.
