If the Contractor is asked to be trained to a certain level to make them Suitably Qualified and Experienced Persons to carry out the work (SQEP) which also requires a further review 12 weeks later and the Contractor attends the training but does not carry out the SQEP Review approvals resulting in the training being totally revoked. Do we as an Employer have to pay for their retraining under NEC ECC?
