JCT Contract Training
JCT contracts are geared towards helping businesses avoid conflicts and providing them with protection if disputes do arise when they execute a building project. Introduced by the Joint Contracts Tribunal, these documents outline who is responsible for specific tasks. JCT contracts help eliminate potential disagreements and legal disputes between businesses, subcontractors and construction companies, thereby enabling all the parties involved to save time and money.
Are you about to enter into a JCT contract or other form of subcontract with construction companies?
If so, our online JCT contract training videos can guide you through the processes and advise you on the common pitfalls.
Although JCTs are a standard form of contract, they will not protect you as a subcontractor. This is why it is advisable to take a JCT contract training course to increase your knowledge of this crucial aspect of your industry. By developing a thorough understanding of the subject, you will find it easier to build a reliable safeguarding mechanism for your business.
Our online course highlights the problems you may encounter when subcontracting under the many JCT forms of construction contracts. We cover the cost of getting it wrong and, most importantly, the measures you can take to prevent potential problems and disagreements with your clients. Because our team are dedicated to ensuring your success, the course will go through every little detail involved in drawing up a JCT contract. Our training videos will cover:
- How to ensure you will get paid for materials off-site
- The use of indemnities or vesting agreements
- Getting paid for variations and daywork
- Compliance with monthly valuations
- Payment and retention
- How to protect yourself against indirect liabilities
- Damages for delay or LADs
- How to clarify your liability for liquidated and ascertained damages
- Claiming for downtime and aborted visits
- Time extensions and suspensions of work
- The passing of the title, risk, protection and insurance responsibilities before and after handover
