JCT launches new range of training courses

JCT Training is a new initiative from JCT, offering a range of training courses on JCT contracts, directly from the construction professionals involved in creating the JCT 2016 Edition.

The new courses cover a range of topics, from an introduction to the JCT suite and choosing the appropriate JCT 2016 contract, to courses covering specific contract families and documents, to courses covering contractual and legal issues.

The first group of training courses, available for June 2018 include: ‘Deciding on the appropriate JCT Contract 2016’ (13th June), ‘JCT Minor Works Building Contract 2016’ (20th June), and ‘JCT Design and Build Contract 2016’ (27th June). Further dates for courses will be available during September, October and November.

JCT has gathered a range of experts – members of the JCT Council and the JCT Drafting Sub-Committee – to provide an unprecedented level of knowledge and expertise for JCT contract users. The day-long sessions give an interactive and detailed insight into the most important elements of the JCT contract process.

JCT executive, Neil Gower, said:

“We are looking forward to making our new range of training courses available for JCT users.

“JCT Training has been developed with those responsible for creating the JCT 2016 Edition of contracts, so there is no better or more authoritative source of information and guidance on the different types of JCT contract and the common issues and challenges that occur in the contracting process.

“I know that the courses will be of great value to JCT users and construction professionals across the industry.”

For each JCT training course, attendees are provided with course materials, stationery and a ‘confirmation of JCT training hours’. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.
