Construction Contracts
Brief Description
The short course in Construction Contracts introduces you to the law of contracts and, more specifically, the various types of construction contracts used in the current South African construction and built environments. Not only will you gain exposure to different building and contractor agreements, but you will also get access to an in- depth knowledge base of professional liability, professional service agreements (PROCSA) and contract standards such as the Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC), New Engineering Contract (NEC), Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils (FIDIC) and General Conditions of Contract (GCC). 

Successful completion of this course will be recognised towards the similar module presented on the Comprehensive Project Management Programme for Built Environment Practitioners (CPMP).
