Certificate & Professional Diploma in Commercial Management (Quantity Surveying)

We are very pleased that our courses for the Certificate and Professional Diploma in Commercial Management have  been re-accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors in May this year.  This process includes inspection and approval of the course material and of academic qualifications  and it is the second time that we have “passed”.


Congratulations to Martin Belshaw who completed the Professional Diploma in Commercial Management in June. Martin scored two distinctions and one merit on his individual Modules with an overall distinction for the Diploma.

It was clearly very hard work. Martin had to be at his office desk by 7.15 am and rarely left before 6.00 pm so there was little time left for studying. Motivation is the key! All the more credit to Martin for his excellent result.

The Diploma is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors and entitles the holder to upgrade to Graduate Membership of the Institution. It comprises three Modules. Progress is assessed by in-course assignments and a final ‘examination’ assignment completed within 14 days of issue set and marked by the Senior Tutor, Hamish Mitchell.

Congratulations to Sandra Millett (P10023) who completed Level III of the Institute of Certified Bookkeeepers exams in March – with 94% in her final exam. But this is only part of Sandra’s achievement. She enrolled for her ICB courses in 2007, passed Levels I and II, and was then unable to continue because she had developed ME and found it difficult to combine job and study with her illness. By 2013, Sandra had learnt to manage her condition and was still ambitious to become a qualified bookkeeper. Unfortunately, as she had let her registration with the ICB lapse, she first had to re-take the exams she had previously passed. Undeterred, Sandra completed the complete suite of exams (five papers) between March 2014 and March 2015 – and passed the exam for the Level III Diploma in Payroll Management. We were so impressed by Sandra’s determination that we nominated her for an ABCC Certificate of Merit (see our Success page). She is now a Member of the Institute, licensed to practice – and looking to study for more qualifications!
