Most states require licensed engineers and surveyors to earn professional development hours (PDHs) each year and file the credits with their state licensing boards. But for many A/E and surveying professionals, the time and expense of a multi-day training program is a challenge, especially when renewal deadlines approach.
That’s why so many professionals turn to ACEC On-Demand Webinars. They can find quality programming on critical engineering business management topics and earn PDHs when and where they like. The increasingly popular option, the On-Demand Webinar 10-Pack, makes in-house continuing education immediate, accessible, and cost-effective. Instead of paying $229 per individual webinar, the 10-pack rate delivers 10 webinars at just $160 per session—that’s a $69 savings with every selection. There’s no expiration date, you can choose webinars on the fly, and your subscription is completely transferable among staff and offices. Each 90-minute recording carries 1.5 PDHs (unless otherwise specified). For a complete listing of available topics, visit https://www.acec.org/education/on-demand-online-classes/.
Completely new to EJCDC, the EJCDC® 2021 Construction Manager as Advisor Series is intended for projects in which the owner’s primary representative during construction will be the construction manager as advisor and is comprised of contract documents, administrative forms, bonds, bidding, and procurement documents.
The new CM as Advisor Series serves the needs of projects in which the design professional focuses on core design and technical services—including engineering services that are required during the construction phase, such as technical review of shop drawings—while a construction manager assists the owner with administrative tasks ranging from budgeting to scheduling to quality management. Several factors inspired EJCDC’s development of the CM as Advisor set of documents:
At the heart of the CM as Advisor Series is EJCDC CMA-501 (2021), Agreement Between Owner and Construction Manager as Advisor. This agreement is based on standard professional services contract principles, and addresses the schedule for rendering services, insurance and indemnification, the standard of care, and the scope of the CM’s services. The scope is set out in a comprehensive exhibit that is coordinated with the scope of engineer’s services, to avoid duplication of effort.
Most of the remainder of the CM as Advisor Series documents are modeled on counterpart documents in the EJCDC Construction Series, with modifications made to accommodate the role of the CM as Advisor during the bidding/procurement process and the construction phase.
Purchasers of the CM as Advisor series will receive copies of several standard C-Series bond forms that did not require modification for the CM as Advisor process.
