01/04/2021- Need to know more about contracts?

Thank you for supporting our online CPD by purchasing contract-related courses in the past. We know that contract law is a specialised area of knowledge that doesn’t form part of tertiary training for many construction professionals, but that’s an increasingly vital business skill.

So we’re getting in touch to let you know that, if you’ve found our previous content beneficial, you might be interested in some of our other resources.

These are just some available topics among our many on-demand online CPD courses providing guidance on contracts:

Contracts Intensive (covering limit of liability clauses, execution of contracts and Unfair Contracts legislation)

Contracts In-Depth

Do we have Agreement on That

Home Building Contracts|

Seven Things All Consultants Should Know About Contracts

Trends in Contracting (covering engaging sub-consultants, collateral warranties and joint ventures)

Understanding Novation

Our informed subscriber resources

informed by Planned Cover provide a range of checklists, special purpose contracts and pro forma letters, such as an example Deed of Novation or “back to back” sub-consultancy agreement, a pro forma data transfer letter, and checklists for engaging sub-consultants or destroying project documents. These documents are all customisable so you can add your own knowledge and tailor them to reflect your priorities.

The subscriber documents include both Practice Guides (which many clients of Planned Cover already have access to for free) and Example Documents (which are available only with the purchase of a subscription). For Planned Cover clients, subscriptions are $500 for the first year, and you can find out more here.
