Are these online courses worth it?

    I've saw a construction management course on Reed for £10. Supposed to be a level 3 diploma by CPD. Would it add much weight to my CV for a role in construction procurement or not worth the tenner?

    Seen other courses as well on other sites that are not degrees or NVQ's. Wondered if they held much merit.

    Without looking at it, on the face of it, for a tenner it's probably worth a shot. You might learn something useful and for ten quid you can't complain. Will it hold any weight on your CV? Unlikely, but if you're really struggling for stuff to put on there, may as well slap it on.

    I'm sure there is a wealth of free resources on construction management. CDM 2015 regs would be a good place to start.
