Certificate in Quantity Surveying Practice

A quantity surveyor is concerned with the costs and financial management of the building life-cycle. In this course, we will cover both pre and post contract processes, the commercial management of construction and concepts on various procurement options; the production of tender documents; the contractor's tendering procedure and strategy; and the detailed process undertaken by the contractor to price tender documents.

This is an intermediate-level QS course designed for both members and non-members. In this course, delegates will cover technical training around the key principles of tendering, estimating and pricing and provide you with knowledge of construction contracts and their financial provisions, procurement options; the production of tender documents; the contractor's tendering procedure and strategy; and the detailed process undertaken by the contractor to price tender documents.

The aim of the course is to provide knowledge and skills in the core competencies of quantity surveying. Each content module is structured around one of the core competencies of the quantity surveying and construction pathway.
