Claims Class Principal Impresses Audience at CPD Talk for the AACEI

Claims Class was proud to lead a CPD talk hosted by the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineers International (AACEI) in Dubai this week, Tuesday 24th September.

As a training and education provider, Claims Class believes that CPD talks provide a good opportunity to impart knowledge to those who may be progressing up the career ladder so it was a great pleasure when Claims Class Principal, Andy Hewitt, was invited by the AACEI to present his talk on ‘Construction Claims and Responses: effective writing and presentation’.

13-09-24 AACE Talk

The UAE chapter of the AACEI is the largest with 2000+ members and we had strong attendance at the talk along with members of the Board. Key messages from the talk included tips such as:

  • Make the reviewer’s job as easy as possible
  • Ensure that the submission is a stand-alone document
  • Assume that the reviewer has no prior knowledge of the project
  • Never forget Cause, Effect, Entitlement and Substantiation (CEES)

We also had the opportunity to distribute some of our course brochures at the end of the evening and it was a pleasure to meet the attendees and  discuss their training needs.

From our point of view the evening was a success and we are already discussing a future CPD talk with the AACEI so watch this space.
