Thank you for giving me the zest to learn new things

I got the chartered membership (MCIOB), and I would like to thank you for your support. To get the chartered membership was challenging for me, but the CCM team were always there supporting me and ready to help. Assessor feedback was excellent. I have not only gained the Chartered membership but also a confidence to appear for better job opportunities. Thank you for giving me the zest to learn new things. I look forward to taking further guidance for another professional membership.

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 strongly recommend their services for CIOB PR coaching

College of contract management is a very professional college; I would strongly recommend their services for CIOB-PR coaching. I selected online services during COVID. Their techniques/ slides quality/ webinars assisted me very well to understand competency requirements of CIOB. They were very proactive in their communications and approachable that bonded and helped gain confidence to successfully achieve my MCIOB in the very first attempt. A very big thanks to college and all associated in supporting me achieve prestigious chartered membership.

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.

CIOB Chartered Membership

Producing a good professional review report that meets the requirements and standard for chartered membership of CIOB can be quite challenging. However, with the professional advice of College of Contract Management, I was able to write a good professional review report that earned me my MCIOB in a single submission. I strongly recommend the College to whoever that is seeking to achieve chartered membership.

Support from the college was first class

Thanks for providing an excellent service, the support from the College of Contract Management was first class.  I also found the online webinars very informative and useful. I have already recommended the College of Contract Management to my fellow work colleagues, who are now looking at becoming MCIOB !!!.

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.
