CIOB Building Conservation Certification Scheme

The CIOB Building Conservation Certification Scheme launches in June 2017 in response to a growing demand for ‘certified’ conservation specialists.  

Applicants will be required to demonstrate their competence against the ICOMOS (International Conference on Monuments and Sites) Training and Education Guidelines based on their experience and qualifications. In addition, the Scheme requires a demonstration of competence towards sustainability and energy efficiency issues.

Eligibility

The Scheme is open to those who hold at least a HNC/HND in Conservation and have typically three years’ relevant experience working in the following roles:

  • Works Supervisors / Site Managers
  • Building/Quantity Surveyors
  • Design Coordinators/Managers
  • Project/Construction Managers
  • Facilities/Estates Managers

 

For those without a HNC/HND in Conservation or three years' relevant experience, successfully completion of the CIOB Academy Understanding Building Conservation course provides eligibility to the certification scheme.

 

Three levels of competence: Registered, Proficient and Certified

To provide individuals at every level the opportunity of furthering their career in building conservation, the Scheme offers three levels of competence: Registered, Proficient and Certified. Each level has different entry requirements and offers a level-specific certificate. For individuals who succeed as ‘proficient’ or as ‘registered’ will receive recognition of their expertise, and at ‘certified’ level have the benefit of being recognised by a growing number of organisations that require ‘certified’ experts. The Scheme also gives an individual the opportunity to progress up through the levels as they acquire additional qualifications and experience. 

Application Process

Full details of the application process will be available following the review of the pilot phase.
