Course Content

The course content will be provided by Aratis, whose trainers are Senior Contract Managers with extensive international experience in (offshore wind) construction projects

Become familiar with the FIDIC General Conditions and understand how and when to use them to manage an offshore wind project successfully. You’ll learn that and so much more in just one day during the ‘Introduction to FIDIC in Offshore Wind’ training course.

This two-day FIDIC course provides you with an overview of the basics of FIDIC, in general, and the FIDIC Yellow Book edition 1999, in particular. The FIDIC Yellow Book contract is the most commonly used type of contract in the offshore wind market. It is applied for wind turbine supply agreements, as well as engineering, procurement and design and build (D&B) contracts for the balance of the plant. The course will focus on how to use the FIDIC Yellow Book in practice, mainly from a Contract Management / Project Management perspective and – to a lesser extent – a legal perspective. As a result, the course will address the practical implications of all 20 clauses for daily project life.


The ‘Introduction to FIDIC in Offshore Wind’ training course and its materials are written and given entirely in English. However, it will be possible to give the lectures in Dutch if all the participants are Dutch.

Target Audience

This course is developed for Contract Managers, Project Managers and professionals with a legal or technical background who are seeking a better understanding of FIDIC contracts in the offshore wind industry.

Hybrid sessions 

Until further notice all training courses will be given in either online or hybrid format. Both hybrid and online training courses consist of live-streaming sessions with continuous interaction between the teachers and all participants. The difference between these formats is that during hybrid sessions a small number of participants can attend physically in our building in Delft, while others attend simultaneously via live-streaming. The content of the lectures and cases during a hybrid session is equal for both physical and online participants. All participants receive a DOB-box beforehand containing all materials required for both online and physical participation 

The maximum number of participants allowed at our training courses will depend on the Dutch COVID-19 regulations and may vary over time. Allotting the available physical seats will be done based on thefirst come first served’ principle.  

If necessary, or if we deem fit, we can and will switch from hybrid to online format to safeguard the health of our clients and colleagues. This implies that also the physical participants will have to attend via the livestreaming session online. We do not advise to wait for a next session to attend physicallyaswe cannot guarantee safe participation at our building months or even weeks ahead of time. DOB-Academy reserves the right to switch from a hybrid to an online format up to 24 hours before the start of the training course. 

Registration closes a week before the training course in order to send all training materials on time.
