A new on-demand course delivered by the FIDIC Academy is set to provide a comprehensive overview of the basic principles and key features of international construction contracts.

The new course, Fundamentals of International Construction Contracts, is aimed at anyone involved in the construction industry – including contractors, engineers, project managers, legal professionals and government officials – and will provide a basic knowledge of international construction law and the contracts that govern international construction projects.

This on-demand course is available in English, with translations available in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, Portuguese, and Spanish, making it accessible to a wide range of professionals around the world. The course, which is led by senior lawyers from leading international construction and insurance law specialists, will ensure that those working on international construction projects are aware of the issues and risks that can arise and are able to protect themselves and their organisations when working on them.

Attendees will benefit from the following: -

  • A clear understanding of the project stakeholders and their roles in an international construction contract.
  • An overview of the way in which international construction projects can be funded and the impact that will have on the terms of the construction contract.
  • An overview of the risks and issues that can arise in international construction projects and how the construction contract can be used to limit those risks.
  • An understanding of the main dispute resolution options in international construction contracts.
  • An introduction to the process of international arbitration and an explanation of why the terms of the arbitration agreement in an international construction contract are very important.

Places on the course cost €80 per person with payment by credit card only. FIDIC will provide a Certificate of Completion to all participants who successfully watch the course video and pass the post-course quiz.
