Education & Training from QSi

Introduction

Nelson Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”. At Quantity Surveyors International we fully endorse this philosophy. It’s not about where you currently stand in your personal education journey ... it’s about where you will be in the future and how QSi can support you to reach your goals. Whether it’s a route to professional body membership, updating your annual CPD or training to reach the next level on your career path, QSi, in partnership with other organisations, is here to help.

Modes of delivery

Whilst many QSi courses are delivered online, we also have a rich heritage of delivering in-company bespoke courses tailored to meet with your specific organisational needs. This may include subject matter from ‘back-to-basics’ through to specialist management and leadership training. All courses are accredited by QSi and all our tutors and materials are internally moderated before delivery. QSi also host 1 day CPD courses and short breakfast seminars, so please watch the main news and events page for further information.

Qualified Course leaders

All QSi courses have been through our rigorous internal QAA standards and are delivered by industry practitioners with a minimum of 20 years’ experience within the sector. The team is appropriately supported by FQSi academic led professionals and this ensures that when you achieve the final QSi completion certificate, you can be confident that the learning you have undertaken is first class.
