Engaging Content from the Comfort of Your Desk 

Sign up today. Learn everything needed to prepare, respond to and manage construction claims. This live course includes a detailed examination of:

  • MODULE 1: Contract Administration – learn how best to prevent and manage claims. Learn best contract admin practice and discover the pitfalls of inadequate contract admin when claim situations arise.
  • MODULE 2: Types of Claim – learn what can and cannot be claimed illustrated from real-life examples.
  • MODULE 3: Delay Analysis – often called ‘the dark art’. We provide an overview of the principles of delay analysis, types of analysis and practical examples of the two most commonly used techniques. Discover and practice how to create an analysis to demonstrate entitlement based on cause and effect.

  • MODULE 4: Cost Calculations – learn the principles of cost recovery and via a case study, learn how to calculate and present costs. We illustrate how costs should be shown in the claim and how costs should be calculated to ascertain the daily cost for each claimable item and how to provide an audit trail for verification.
  • MODULE 5: Essential Elements of a Successful Claim – To succeed, a claim must include certain key elements. Examine what they are and how to successfully prepare or assess a claim.
  • MODULE 6: Presentation of Claims and Responses – find out the best way to put a claim together. Many valid claims fail because they were poorly compiled and presented. Avoid the mistakes others have made.
  • MODULE 7: Responses & Determinations – Every claim will include a response or determination. Discover the complexities and detail of the dispute resolution process and how to present responses.
