Introduction

Firstly, being a manager means that you are responsible for guiding your team towards your collective business goals. The strategy you use in order to achieve your company’s goals can make or break a business. Moreover, Strategic Management involves analysing where your business is currently and why, envisioning where you want it to be, then creating a plan that will get you there. Now, since this involves such a high level of responsibility, it makes sense to get as much training as possible to give you and your company the best chance of success.

Importantly, it is designed to teach you the analytical, organisational, communication and decision-making skills you need in order to become a confident and successful leader.

Excellent lecturers and perfect teaching methods

CCM is an online College that is very helpful to achieve professional growth and success through effective techniques. Thanks to excellent lecturers and perfect teaching methods, I have gained valuable knowledge in my career and all courses have contributed to my professionalism better than ever. As for me, I am the Managing Director at QS Company, able to share my academic knowledge and technology in my field of work. Especially after the Covid 19 pandemic and the global crisis, there are too many disputes and problems for Claims in the parties involved in the Construction Industry. Thanks to the academic knowledge in the CCM course I can make perfect solutions with good results. Although CCM Lectures are online courses; we can learn as an in person class with live stream section. The CCM department is knowledgeable in very effectively using the online nature and techniques of the program and every team member always provides a promotional response. I have achieved Dip in PPM, Pro Dip in FIDIC and Certificate in Claims Preparation and Dispute Management  from CCM. Thanks much to all of the CCM team and lectures, I Wish the CCM great success.

Recommend this Route

I have been delighted with the level of service and professionalism received from the CCM and I would recommend this route to Chartership to others who are considering gaining membership through CIOB. This route cuts out the need to rely on colleagues and peers for support and if you are willing to put in the work, you can really gain membership in as little as 2-4 months.

In a forensic delay analysis course, participants learn how to analyze delays in construction projects and determine the cause and effect of those delays. Testimony in such a course may involve presenting a case study where a delay occurred in a construction project and explaining how the delay was analyzed and resolved. In addition, cover the legal aspects of delay analysis, including the role of delay analysis in resolving disputes between parties involved in a construction project. Participants may also learn about best practices for conducting a forensic delay analysis and how to present their findings in a clear and concise manner. Overall, the goal for a forensic delay analysis course is to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the process of analyzing delays in construction projects and to provide practical skills for conducting such analysis in real-world scenarios.

Just superb!

The content & the depth of the course material, the knowledge of the lecturers & the way Moodle is set up, is just superb!  For a working person like myself, I could access Moodle with the lectures any time. I could even choose from the recorded lectures of previous seasons’ modules or go with the live lectures. The material in each module is holistic. There is adequate reference and links to books, articles, design codes…etc. The lecturers were easily accessible. The assignments were prepared in a manner that served to test the understanding of concepts as well as a recap of the course material.

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.
