Practical Use of the FIDIC Contracts Intermediate E-Course | Accepting Trial Students!

You may have seen last year that Claims Class has stepped into the world of online learning and to kick things off, we launched our Construction Claims Basic and Construction Claims Intermediate E-Courses in 2017.

We’re starting 2018 on a high and our second course, the Practical Use of the FIDIC Contracts Intermediate E-Course is ready to go and we’re running a trial launch.

Before we get into the details, if you’re thinking that you would rather not be a trial student then let me reassure you. Whilst this is a trial launch, all video content, resources, assignments and tutor support will be delivered EXACTLY as they would be if you were to sign up during the official launch. During the trial period, we simply want to ensure that we have created: (more…)

Introducing E-Courses for Quality and Convenient Learning

Firstly, we would like to wish all our blog readers a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. We realise this is more than a little delayed (we can’t believe it’s March already!) but that’s because we have been busy behind the scenes working on a new and improved version of Claims Class AND we’re excited to now be able to share some details of our plans with you!

In 2017, Claims Class will be venturing into the world of e-courses!

Why? Well…

Claims Class is a small and friendly training and education provider and over the past 5 years we have grown the Claims Class brand and delivered courses across the Middle East, South- Asia, the UK, South Africa and Ireland.

During this time, we have built a good reputation for our training and we now receive enquiries from people all over the world asking if we plan to present our training courses in their countries.

Whilst we would love to deliver our courses in more regions, costs and logistics mean that we need large numbers of attendees for the courses to be economically viable and, without good connections for marketing, this becomes a challenge.

Times have also changed. Whilst there is still great benefit in attending face-to-face training courses (and don’t’ worry, we’ll continue to run those), we realise that busy, time-constrained professionals want access to quality training at times and from locations that are convenient to them. We wanted to meet that need.

So, what can you expect from our e-courses?

Improved Resources for Distance Learning Students

webinar-announcement

We have recently added recorded tutorials to the Construction Claims Distance Learning course content and already, we are seeing the positive impact that this is having for our students.

Previously, when a student was issued with a module they were required to schedule a call with their tutor to discuss the module content and how to tackle the module assignments. Over time, we realised that there were certain elements of the modules that most students seemed to struggle with and/or would not deal with properly when working on their assignments. (more…)

2015: New Year, New Opportunity

We’ve already had a busy start to 2015 (hence this plans for 2015 post coming at the end of February!) with the launch of our new course on Understanding Claims Under the FIDIC Contracts and the return of our annual Construction Claims course in Qatar.

We have more plans for the year and are excited to start working on them. Here’s a sneak peak of what you can expect to see from Claims Class in 2015:

Courses

  • New course dates will be set for all intensive training courses.
  • We are exploring new regions to take Claims Class courses to including South Africa and Australia and searching for appropriate regional partners.
  • We are developing a two-day Forensic Delay Analysis course.
  • We are working on new ways for our distance learning students to connect with one another. This includes a student’s forum where they can discuss the course, seek help and receive insight from tutors and a knowledge center containing useful reading material, advice and so on.

Blog

  • Launching an ‘opt-in’ service for those who enjoy reading the Claims Class Blog and wish to be notified via email when a new blog is posted (tick – see to the right of this post!).
  • Users will also be notified when someone replies to a comment that they have made on a post and will be able to respond and keep the conversation going.

Customer Experience

  • Improving the online registration and payment options so that you can easily pay for courses online with a credit card without needing a PayPal account.

That’s all from us for now. As always, thanks for reading if you have any suggestions for Claims Class please get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
