It is not uncommon for construction workers of all levels to have to handle claims during the course of their career. This CPD short course will make you aware of the process of making claims in construction. It will also teach you how to present your information and evidence in a way that will maximise the chances of your claim being approved. You’ll learn to implement effective construction project administration in order to safeguard your company for any future claims.
This Claims Preparation course is a valuable addition to your professional profile that fits conveniently into your schedule. The College of Contract Management teaches through live online lectures that give you the benefit of a classroom without leaving home. All live online lectures are held at weekends in order to minimise disruption to your working life. Together with supplementary reading material, you’ll be versed in claims preparation in next to no time.
The course lectures will be conducted by Senior Consultants who have expertise in the field of construction claims and extensive experience as General Contractors.
Anyone hoping to become a member of a professional chartered institute needs to build Continuing Professional Development hours. This course will provide you with 10 formal CPD hours. These break down to 4 CPD hours spent attending your live online lectures and a further 6 hours of independent study using the supplementary reading material we will provide for you.
Once you have completed your 10 CPD hours, we will issue you with an electronic, signed Certificate of Completion that will confirm the CPD hours you’ve obtained. This does not require any formal assessment.

- Be aware of the causes for and process of making claims in construction.
