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.
We have gathered a range of JCT experts 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.
Each attendee of a JCT Training Course will receive materials, stationery and a confirmation of ‘JCT training hours’ – the only authoritative training, directly from the source. Lunch and refreshments are also provided.
