FIDIC INTERNATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMME


FIDIC: Module 1 - Practical Use of FIDIC Conditions of Contract


Programme: two-day training course

This practical training course or seminar, provided by professional engineers with extensive international experience, explains and illustrates the use of the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction (the “Construction Contract”) and the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build (the “Design- Build Contract”). The course is designed to help the participants have confidence in working with these documents whether representing employers, consultants or contractors. Case studies are included.

When selecting the most suitable FIDIC Conditions of Contract for a particular project it is important to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and understanding to make an informed decision. The understanding is that FIDIC remains a sound starting point for any major infrastructure project, which includes power rehabilitation projects. Independent consulting engineers can provide invaluable advice on both investment and procurement strategies.

This two day programme is based on the FIDIC Approved Module 1 Workshop and introduces the FIDIC Suite of Contracts. It examines the roles of both the Employer and the Contractor/Engineer and highlights the essential differences between the various contract documents. The responsibility for design is dealt with and a substantial amount of time is devoted to the issue of extensions of time, variations and certification. Dispute resolution under the FIDIC Contracts is highlighted and the issues of notices, claims and time bars are discussed in detail.

This practical course is supplemented by true life case studies and group discussions ensure that delegates come away with a good understanding of the FIDIC philosophy.
