NEC Training Courses

For over 10 years NE Consult has been a leading provider of NEC training courses. Our clients have included national and local government, NHS Trusts, regulated bodies such as water and nuclear licensed companies, as well as construction consultants and contractors in both the UK and abroad.

Our courses have been developed by Neil Earnshaw who is a recognised expert in the use of NEC contracts. Neil works with the publisher of NEC contracts and was involved in the development of NEC4. He regularly speaks at conferences and seminars, publishes papers and blogs on NEC contracts.

NE Consult offers a wide range of courses, all of which can be adapted to suit your needs.
