We recommend the ECV and its Module 2-1 course to those either planning or actually undertaking construction projects using the 2017 FIDIC Contracts without hesitation.
There are so many changes and amendments between 1999 & 2017 Contracts, it’s really not easy to help participants understand the differences, but you make it with your brilliant experiences and well designed training materials.
The course was wonderful and indeed we had good insights in the application of FIDIC. The industry is enriched with knowledgeable and motivational trainers like you.
