Benefits of our training

ideal for those starting out in contract management. Gave clear guidance on what information should be included in writing a specification to avoid any ambiguity down the line.

This course is ideal for those new to contract management. It gives excellent guidance on how to evaluate tenders received ie, not just price but also customer service and additional sots. I now feel confident in my role when evaluating tenders and contracts.
