Description

This microcredential subject builds on the knowledge and skills obtained in parts 1 and 2, with a focus on some of the key issues in construction law. This part examines in detail the design, quality and scope of a major project, including variations and intellectual property. Standards, in particular the Building Code of Australia, are considered within the context of design and quality. Payment, as a core component, is studied with an emphasis on practical outcomes for the management and compliance associated with payments.

Finally, this microcredential addresses disputes, again from a real-world perspective. Participants have the opportunity to learn through the practical application of case studies, including the management of disputes. This part brings together the knowledge and skills taught, practised and assessed across the three microcredentials in order to provide a comprehensive guide to construction law.
