CIOB are one of the few professional institutes that offer its own nationally recognised qualifications. The Level 3 Certificate and Diploma in Site Supervisory Studies and the Level 4 Certificate and Diploma in Site Management courses are registered with Ofqual under the Regulatory Qualifications Framework (RQF). As a regulatory organisation we adhere to the criteria and standards as set by the overseeing authority.

Flexible learning

We have been offering site supervision and site management courses for over forty years and have held regulatory status for fourteen years. Each year hundreds of candidates complete our certificated courses at CIOB approved centres. These include colleges of further education and training providers. The courses may also be studied via distance, blended-learning or some weekend delivery.

Route to Chartered Membership

Our construction qualifications are recognised by the Construction Skills Certification Scheme and eligible for the Academically Qualified Persons card for the Level 3 and the Construction Site Managers (Black) card. They also provide access to CIOB membership. Initially free student membership is offered for the duration of study leading to a pathway towards Chartered Membership either via experience and/or further study.

Please note that as of 31st October 2019, our Level 4 Certificate in Site Management course is no longer eligible for the Construction Site Managers (Black) card. Our Level 4 Diploma remains eligible.

Bespoke syllabuses

Our bespoke qualification syllabuses are tailored to meet the needs of those wishing to progress to supervisory and management positions in providing the skills and knowledge of how to manage and co-ordinate all types of construction projects. Candidates work towards their awards by completing set unit assignments.
