NEC3 ECC SUPERVISORS
ACCREDITATION

The NEC3 ECC Supervisors Accreditation is designed for aspiring supervisors, clerk of works,
construction inspectors and architectural technicians. These roles are essential in the
impartial assessment of construction and require experience in many facets of the building
trade. If you’re looking to supervise on a NEC ECC project, this is a chance to be recognised
by employers and give yourself the unique opportunity to set yourself apart from your industry
peers.

The two-day training provides a highly interactive, hands on session with emphasis on scenario
planning and teaching through case studies to equip delegates with skills necessary to be able
to fulfil the supervisor role for an NEC project.

The supervisor in an NEC3 ECC project operates independently of the project manager. They
monitor, test and defect, and check compliance with the Works Information. Therefore, it is
essential the supervisor is sufficiently experienced. Throughout the two-day programme, the
NEC experts leading the training will define the role and duties that a supervisor has.
Successful completion of the course will give you the option to be listed on the Register of
Accredited Professionals, held by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). The accreditation can
also be used as an exempting qualification towards the membership of Institute of Clerks of
Works and Construction Inspectorate (ICWCI).
