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.
