ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS TO OFFER CQM COURSE FOR V.I. CONTRACTORS
by VIBusiness Staff

     Delegate Donna Christian-Christensen announced today that the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will hold all day courses on "Construction Quality Management for Contractors (CQM)" October 27th and 28th on St. Croix for contractors performing or who desire to perform work for the USACE.
     
     Successful completion of this course will allow Virgin Islands contractors to qualify for project quality control manager positions on projects sponsored by the Corps of Engineers. Corps of Engineer specs require contractors to retain the services of someone who has successfully completed the 12-hour CQM course for this managerial position.
     
     The Construction Quality Management for Contractors course costs $25 and includes the cost of materials. Participants will receive a certificate of completion valid for 5 years. Residents can register by calling the Corps of Engineers Antilles Construction Office at (787) 729-6880 or (787) 729-6833.
     
     Further information can be obtained on the USACE Jacksonville District Web Page at www.saj.usace.army.mil/conops/conops.html
     
     This course is the product of a meeting between the Delegate's Office and the new Deputy District Engineer for the Antilles, Lt. Col. Jose Buitrago. Acoording to the Delegate, this is an excellent opportunity for our residents in the construction business to qualify to manage projects that come under their jurisdiction. "As a first step in responding to our request that local contractors be a priority in contract awards for work in the Territory, the Corps of Engineers has made this course affordable and available to those of you in the industry. To qualify for jobs, this type of certification is necessary and so I urge contractors in St. Croix, St.Thomas and St.John to take advantage of this resource that will benefit all of us in the long run," she continued.
     
     "The Corps has expressed to me its commitment to helping the Virgin Islands and will continue to work with my office and the V.I. Government to ensure that we have priority consideration for projects here in the Territory," the Delegate concluded.
