This training programme fuses together the skills required of a project manager with those technical skills required by the NEC. Taking delegates from project start-up to project closure it will look at the procedures as described in the NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), the purpose of those procedures and the implications of not following them correctly. It also ensures delegates are familiar with the interdependencies of the various documents required by the ECC.

Successful completion of this training programme will enable a delegate to describe themselves as accredited NEC4 Project Manager with specific reference to the ECC. The delegate will be able to demonstrate the key processes crucial to the NEC4 and how to apply them to an ECC Project. There will be references to common NEC processes and applications, but this training programme is specifically intended to be used on projects.


The NEC4 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) has been developed for the appointment of a contractor for engineering and construction project work, including any level of design responsibility. It provides a modern method for clients, designers, contractors and project managers to work collaboratively to achieve their objectives consistently.

Under the ECC, the Client is represented by the Project Manager. Being a Project Manager is a skill in itself. Understanding a whole range of competing interests and balancing these against the need to deliver a high-quality project on time, to budget and to standard is a difficult task. Coupled with the legal, not to mention financial, implications of delivering a project incorrectly the task can seem quite daunting.

Understanding the relationship between the Contract Data, the Programme, the Scope and a strong communication procedure is vital to the successful execution of any ECC project. In-depth knowledge of the process, terms, functions and interdependencies is the key to being a successful ECC Project Manager and the delegate will have the opportunity in this training programme to understand not just what those processes are, but why they should be followed to achieve a successful outcome.

Dealing with crucial issues such as time, quality, cost, risk, compensation events and early warnings, this training programme will give delegates opportunities to work through both contract-based and non-contract-based scenarios with the intention of equipping them with key tools needed in any ECC project role.
