New course added to JCT’s online training programme

JCT has released the latest batch of dates for its JCT Training Online courses, including a range of new courses that have been added to its digital programme for the first time.

The dates for May/June 2021 include new courses on the JCT Standard Building Contract 2016, JCT Intermediate Building Contract 2016, and JCT Minor Works Building Contract 2016.

These are in addition to the JCT Design and Build Contract 2016 and JCT Contracts 2016 – The Legal Perspective courses, which launched last year and will re-run in this latest batch.

The contract-specific courses provide an in-depth look at their respective forms and variants, enabling participants to learn about setting out the contract and what provisions are included. The aim is to give a thorough grounding with detailed knowledge and guidance to make sure common pitfalls are avoided and to provide confidence in dealing with the contract.

The legal perspective course is aimed at those with more experience of using JCT contracts who are seeking to gain a detailed understanding of the legal framework underpinning the JCT suite.

JCT Training Online courses are 3 hours duration, delivered as live broadcast webinars. Interactivity is provided with the ability to ask questions through the interface during set aside Q&A segments.

All courses feature the same expert trainers as JCT’s face-to-face courses – either past or current members of the JCT Council or JCT Drafting Sub-Committee. With training delivered by those directly involved in the drafting of JCT contracts, the courses provide an unparalleled level of knowledge and expertise for JCT contract users.

Prior to the webinars, participants will receive relevant course materials, a pre-event questionnaire to establish priority topics and tailor the training, and will be able to test and troubleshoot any technology issues ahead of time to make sure their course runs smoothly on the day.
