Firstly, tendering is a competitive process that a lot of money can rest on. And, 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 the appropriate documents.
Notably, the Tender Management course is taught entirely online using pre-recorded lectures. However, you will be taught by a Senior Quantity Surveyor with expert knowledge in the industry. Importantly, the course is just 10 hours long and fits perfectly into your work schedule.
Additionally, 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. Also, a further 6 hours of independent study using the supplementary reading material we will provide for you.
Finally, 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. However, this does not require any formal assessment.
Lastly, upon completion of this Tender Management CPD course, you will:
To begin, know how to manage PPQs (Pre-Qualification Questionnaires) and analyse ITTs (Invitations to Tender).
As well as understand bid basics, timescales and the resources you need to tender.
Understand buyer and seller perspectives and overseas implications.
Have the ability for quantitative and qualitative assessment in order to review and continually improve.
Know the structure, impact, production and evaluation of a bid.
Also, be able to structure a bid document effectively and control a structured submission.
Evaluate and analyse bid requirements.
Manage bids and respond effectively.
Finally, deliver confident and professional tender that beats competitors.
It was a wonderful and enjoyable study experience that lasted for one year with the College of Contract Management. I hope to benefit from other courses in the near future due to the great benefit provided by the college as well as the flexibility provided by the method of study that suits most professionals.

I will be forever appreciative
After careful consideration on whether to undertake the CIOB professional review direct with the CIOB or go through the College of Contract Management UK I choose the excellent service provided by CCM. My decision was based upon the impressive fact that the CCM has a 100% pass rate in the professional review coaching service. My result supports this fact as I passed on my first attempt. CCM helped me achieve my professional goal for 2020 and for that I will be forever appreciative.

The support and collaborative approach by CCM has made it possible for me
Very often, we take steps towards our desired goal but sometimes we might fail and sometimes we see the bright light of success with the guidance from the right people. The support and collaborative approach by CCM has made it possible for me. The succinct details for the professional review were clearly defined by the institute and I feel it was a value for money. My application has succeeded and finally, I am felicitated with MCIOB. Many thanks to the instructor and Rebecca for being part of my success story.

I would highly recommend the college
I was very apprehensive prior to starting the course, not knowing what to expect, but from the first online lecture I was made to feel part of the class. The structure of the lectures are easy to follow and enable full interaction. The lecturers are all very helpful, providing guidance and direction where needed along with very descriptive explanations of all aspects being studied. Discussions throughout each lecture helped me to understand and retain what was being taught. A very big thank you to the College and all involved who helped me achieve a Distinction in the Chartered Membership Programme.

Senior Quantity Surveyor / AKTOR
I would recommend the college and the CMP course
Before joining the lectures I had my unknown fears that how would I understand the subject and study materials because of online lectures. But really I appreciate the lecturers who made lectures so descriptive, explanatory and to easily understand. During the lecture I like one thing most that after explaining each topic they put a question for us to know our concentration and understanding towards the lecture. I would recommend the college and the Chartered Membership Programme.
