This paper covers the principles of claims, the role of insurers and of insurance brokers, the responsibilities of adjusters and the duties of the parties: it also shows how, from the point of view of the insurer, greater efficiency can be achieved in the construction process by proper attention to the duties of the client and his professional advisers on the one hand and the contractor on the other.

This paper examines developments in the education and training of the structural engineering technician since the introduction of the Institution's Technician Certificate in 1970. The establishment of the Technician Education Council and the Engineers Registration Board has provided a framework within which the Institution has
developed its policy for technicians. The progress made by the Technician Education Council is reviewed and future changes in the education of technicians are discussed. A recent survey of those who have passed the Institution test reveals the nature of their employment, their opinion of the test and their desire for status. A training scheme for technicians is described in some detail and reference is made to the recent introduction of an Associate-Membership class within the Institution for technicians.
