ICE has run a series of law and contract management examinations for a while now, both in classroom and online formats. These exams are designed to improve understanding of contracts. They cover contractual conditions, their legal framework and the management procedure you need to successfully complete projects.

This short series of seminars will focus on Module 2 NEC Contract Management Exam – this is aimed at clients, contractors and professional service providers including architects, QS and engineers. It will concentrate on questions around the NEC4 family of contracts, NEC4 ECC in particular.

We will work through the examinations syllabus and the second webinar will cover Contents of the NEC4 – management tools.

In case you missed our first webinar you can view a recording of NEC4 ECC General matters and contract options.

More details about the examinations can be found on our career pages.
