Study that Fits your Schedule
Tendering is a competitive process that a lot of money can rest on. When you are invited to tender, winning that contract can depend on how thoroughly you understand your potential client’s needs and how you accordingly answer their questions. The College of Contract Management’s CPD course in Tender Management will improve your skills and help you to win contracts. By the end, you’ll be able to successfully evaluate, plan and deliver your tender.
The Tender Management course is taught entirely online. We will invite you to attend our live online lectures at weekends, where you can benefit from the interaction you would in a classroom, instead from your own home. We highly recommend attending the live lectures since you can ask your lecturer questions and discuss ideas. However, you also have the option of watching recordings of the live online lectures at a time that suits you. You will be taught by a Senior Quantity Surveyor with expert knowledge in tender management. The course is just 10 hours long and fits perfectly into your work schedule.
Anyone hoping to become a member of a professional chartered institute needs to build Continuing Professional Development hours. This course will provide you with 10 formal CPD hours. These break down to 4 CPD hours spent attending your live online lectures and a further 6 hours of independent study using the supplementary reading material we will provide for you.
Once you have completed your 10 CPD hours, we will issue you with an electronic, signed Certificate of Completion that will confirm the CPD hours you’ve obtained. This does not require any formal assessment.

- Know how to manage PPQs (Pre-Qualification Questionnaires) and analyse ITTs (Invitations to Tender).
