The International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) has, over the years, issued a number of standard documents for use on construction projects. The contracts which are currently in most common use around the world are: The Conditions of Contract for Construction (The Red Book); The Conditions of Contract for Plant and Design-Build (The Yellow Book); The Conditions of Contract for EPC Turnkey Projects (The Silver Book).
This training course has been designed to be highly practical and includes active participation in online break-out groups and discussion sessions.
Delegates who complete this course will receive a certificate from a FIDIC Certified Trainer.
The course will be conducted over a series of talks and workshops.
Attendees should ensure they have a copy of the Yellow or Red 2017 Book in advance of participating in the course. FIDIC Contracts Books should be ordered directly from the FIDIC Bookshop at www.FIDIC.org/bookshop
