An insight from a PIBE Pioneer Graduates

Eric Baclig

PIBE gave me the chance to meet quantity surveyors with different backgrounds (co-trainees and trainers). Being with these people for one year is a great adventure, meeting deadlines, unending discussions of approach to certain issues at the workplace and breaking the norm of inconsistencies we have encountered from our quantity surveying practices. We have common goals back then, to learn and re-learn.
