Description

This microcredential subject builds on the knowledge and skills obtained in part 1, with a focus on the contract in construction law. The course offers a practical guide to the contract and the relevant issues that arise from the legal relationships among parties. These issues include site, planning and time considerations. Importantly, the consequences of a breach of contract are examined and discussed from a ‘hands-on’ perspective.

At a broader level, the legislative framework is examined in order to provide an applied understanding of processes, requirements and compliance. A key component of the course is its practical application, positioned around case studies. Participants have the opportunity to learn through the practical examination of an assessed case study.
