Construction Quality Management (CQM) Course

The US Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) requires all contractors performing construction on Corps projects to comply with the “Contractor Quality Control” (CQC), provisions in their contracts. In the early development of the CQC system, there was considerable misunderstanding as to what was required and who was responsible for it. In cooperation with the construction industry, the Corps developed a training course entitled “Construction Quality Management for Contractors (CQM).” The purpose of this course is to familiarize all quality management personnel with the Corps’ construction quality management policies and procedures.

The course details the requirements of the government and contractor personnel assigned to the project and the reasons for those requirements. The effectiveness of the CQM system is enhanced when all personnel are aware of their responsibilities and the reasons for them. To ensure the success of the CQC system, every Corps construction contract stipulates that the Contractor’s Quality Control Representative is required to have this training.


*At this time, Portland District is only offering CQM Training to contractors working on Portland District contracts.  Please contact your Contracting Officer or Administrative Contracting Officer to schedule training.
