Join Andy Hewitt and Claims Class, live, for hands-on practical learning.

What you will learn

Sign up today and prepare to learn the key principles of construction claims. Across 7 modules, we will cover:

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.

Learn what can and cannot be claimed illustrated from real-life examples.

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.

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.

To succeed, a claim must include certain key elements. Examine what they are and how to successfully prepare or assess a claim.

Find out the best way to put a claim or response together. Many valid claims fail because they were poorly compiled and presented. Avoid the mistakes others have made.

Every claim will include a response or determination. Discover the complexities and detail of the dispute resolution process and how to present responses.

What our students have to say

I am so happy I took this course! I thought I knew how to write claims but Andy has taught me a whole new way. I am now confident that I can prepare claims. Following this course, I prepared a claim at work and my boss was so impressed, he called me into his office to ask questions about it! Cannot recommend enough, thank you.
