Contractors, Tulsa District

The Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (SWT USACE) offers a CQM and RMS 3.0 CM classes in 
calendar year 2024 as indicated in the schedule below.

The mutual goal of the Contractor and the Government is to achieve a quality product, executed 
safely, on time, and within budget. Quality management succeeds through a partnership between the 
Contractor and the Government. The Contractor is responsible for the daily Quality Control (QC) of 
the work, while the Government through Quality Assurance (QA) ensures that the Contractor's Quality 
Control program is working effectively.

Effective CQM supports worker pride, results in favorable recognition, and has the potential to 
increase the Contractor's profit margin.

The CQM course offers prospective QC Managers/ Administrators the opportunity to satisfy the CQM 
training requirements specified in USACE and NAVFAC construction contracts. This course must be
