The TSC Service Manager Accreditation is designed to equip delegates with the skills necessary to be able to fulfil the role of a Service Manager under the NEC3 Term Service Contact (TSC). The programme is part of unique suite of accreditations for those undertaking managerial roles within NEC3 projects and contracts.

Why Enrol?
  • The only NEC3 TSC Service Manager accreditation available - a unique opportunity; recognised by employers and setting you apart from your peers
  • Offers complete clarity on the roles and duties of a TSC Service Manager
  • Gives Service Managers real skills and tools to execute their roles
  • Highly interactive, with emphasis on scenario planning and teaching through case studies
  • Peer reviewed course content and expert delivery from an NEC3 specialist
  • On successful completion of the programme, you will receive a unique accreditation as an NEC3 TSC Service Manager and entry onto the Register for Accredited NEC Professionals, held by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)

Under the TSC, the Employer is represented by the Service Manager. The Service Manager can be an in-house or an external appointment, and they require a strong understanding of the contract clauses and their duties. The Service Manager has a critical role during the service delivery phase of the contract and must:

  • Issue instructions
  • Monitor the performance of the Contractor
  • Maintain the risk register
  • Assess compensation events and payments
  • Manage the Contractor’s Plan
