Working for equitable contracts and fair payment terms

New Construction Contractual Dispute Avoidance qualification

We are really excited to announce that the Confederation has been collaborating with ARDEN University to develop a Construction Contractual Dispute Avoidance qualification. The qualification and course is now developed and we are now registering interest for a course later this year.

The course is made up of six units:

  1. Introduction to Contracts
  2. Supervising and Managing Specialist Construction Work
  3. Obtaining Payment
  4. An Alternative Form Contract
  5. Handling Claims and Disputes
  6. Specialist Subcontract Management

The course is set at Level 4, is thorough and substantial and is designed to provide a broad appeal to all construction staff who are involved with contracts. The course will give an in-depth understanding of contracts and the knowledge and confidence to use them to your company’s advantage. Link to Leaflet
