Bridges not accepted (as it is missing from the list of courses)?

Question 2: The
Project Manager scoring criteria for qualifications has been revised since the
previously advertised projects of this type whereby additional training courses
are now required in order to score the maximum points in the TP. We were not
aware of any advance notice that this would occur so that consultants had the
opportunity to attend the NHI training classes necessary to avoid losing
points. Please indicate where any advance notification of the change in the
qualification scoring criteria was provided.
Answer 2: The
Project Manager scoring criteria for qualifications has been revised for all the
TP's since the previously advertised projects from Spring 2012 , Fall 2012 and
spring 2013. Previously Extra point requirement (Bridge
Inspection Refresher (NHI #130053) INCLUDING Pontis Element section) became mandatory requirement now since spring 2012.
