the market leader

The NEC system has become the market leader in contracts for the procurement of works services and supply.  However before compiling, tendering to or administering an NEC contract it is essential to undergo training.

NEC documents have been designed to incorporate the principles of modern project management which if applied correctly ensure both client and supplier of the best possible outcome from their procurement activity. NEC contracts are different to the more traditional contracts being drafted as a set of procedures for the management of time, cost and quality which are to be carried out by role players named in the contract.

Training in the understanding and application of those management procedures is an essential pre-requisite to their effective application. With Andrew Baird being one of the original NEC system designers and a member of the NEC drafting Panel since inception he is in the unique position of being able to provide delegates with the best possible training experience.

We have been awarded NEC Commercial Partner status by ICE-UK for delivery in Southern Africa of NEC’s accredited training programmes.

Traditional approach to training

ECS has been providing mainly in house training on NEC contracts throughout southern Africa and Europe since 1996 with excellent feedback from thousands of delegates who have attended. We offer training in two or one day modules ranging from a general introduction to the complete NEC3 system of contracts and the flagship NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contact (ECC3) to detailed ‘on job’ one day workshops on the main procedures within the ECC3 and one or two day training events on the other contracts in the NEC3 family.

We will soon be able to offer clients access to on line delegate awareness testing for the contracts they have been trained on which will generate random questions and immediate results on completion. ECS is an approved CPD Provider in terms of the Engineering Council of South Africa requirements and most of our events qualify for 2 or 1 day CPD credits.

Please contact us for a detailed proposal which we will tailor to your specific organisation or project requirements.


Keeping in line with Covid-19 restrictions, training will now be held virtually ONLINE
