JCT has developed a new package of online training to sit alongside its traditional, face-to-face courses.
The programme aims to provide more flexibility for contract users following the restrictions and wider working implications of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The scheme started on the 26 November 2020, where two courses, “JCT Design and Build Contract 2016” and “JCT Contracts 2016: The Legal Perspective”, were delivered as live, interactive webinars.
The new digital JCT Training comes from the same expert trainers as the physical courses – all either past or current members of the JCT Council or JCT Drafting Sub-Committee.
As well as being broadcast live, the lecture-style courses also provide interactivity for attendees who will be able to ask questions of the trainers during specially set-aside Q&A segments.
When booking a course, attendees are sent a questionnaire to complete in advance, to identify priority areas and highlight any specific questions that the trainers can incorporate into their session.
The courses are 3-hours in duration, and once attendees have booked a place, they will be sent relevant course materials and be able to test and troubleshoot any technology issues ahead of time to make sure their course runs smoothly on the day.
JCT chief executive, Neil Gower, said:
“As the industry begins to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic, it is vital that training can also continue, as it has never been more important that contract users are able to get the information and skills they need to work with their contracts successfully.
“Our new online JCT Training programme delivers a high quality service that suits home or office working, and ensures that restrictions due to Covid-19 are not a barrier to JCT users accessing the services they need.
“Alongside our digital drafting services, JCT Construct and JCT On Demand, online training is another important step in delivering JCT’s digital future”.
