FIDIC logo acenlogo1We are glad to announce to the general public that A 2-DAY FIDIC EPC MODULE INTERNATIONAL TRAINING 2015 application form is now on sale.

The two day course will provide a thorough understanding of the FIDIC EPC/T form of contract (otherwise known as the “Silver Book”). The course will begin by looking at the background to EPC/T projects and their specific features. The manner in which the Silver Book approaches these features will be compared to and contrasted with the approach taken by the more traditional FIDIC contract forms.

The introduction will be followed by a detailed explanation of each clause with emphasis on the key issues such as contractor’s responsibility for design, fitness for purpose, errors in Employer’s Requirements, unforeseeable physical conditions, testing, payments, variations and claims. The course will end with a look at the dispute resolution processes defined by FIDIC, including foreseeable developments in this area.FIDIC INTERNATIONAL TRAINING
