Training methodology

This EuroMaTech training course will combine conventional teaching with a high level of participation; including an interactive approach to involving participants in discussion of topics; exercises; and encouraging participants to bring their own experiences forward for discussion and debate. Project management techniques will be taught through computer-based exercises, and project videos will be used to promote discussion of “real life” issues.


The first half of the Advanced Contracts & Project Management training course will address the contracting process from tendering and award, through planning and management to close out and resolution of disputes. The intention is to develop general skills with application to a wide range of contractual situations, and to allow participants to have an awareness of practices in other areas and other industries which may add value to their own situations.

The second half of this Advanced Contracts & Project Management training course will demonstrate how decisions made early in project development will have significant impact on subsequent project performance. Topics will demonstrate how to integrate project objectives, owner capabilities and project risks into a systematic approach to selecting delivery systems, contractor procurement, and project execution and monitoring.
