I have an NVQ

Shorter application for Chartered Membership

Holding a Level 7 NVQ in Construction Senior Management or Built Environment Design and Consultancy Practice puts you on the fast track to becoming a Chartered Member. You can apply for Chartered Membership immediately, and, as your NVQ7 is proof of your professional competency, your Professional Review process will be shorter than the Industry route. You only need to complete a short paper focusing on your ethics and professional judgement.

Holders of a Level 6 NVQ will provide academic eligibility to undertake the full Industry Professional Review.

If you have a Level 5 NVQ or below, you may want to consider our Chartered Membership Programme (CMP) – click here for more information

You must join the CIOB as a non-chartered member (Applicant) before you can proceed to the Professional Review. Apply online now by clicking Join Now.

Please Note: From January 2020, candidates applying for the accelerated route via the Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management must meet the following requirements:

1. Have completed the NVQ within the last 3 years
2. Be able to demonstrate that their assessor was a current chartered member or fellow of the CIOB

Candidates unable to meet these requirements may still access chartered membership through the full professional review

Other NVQ or vocational qualifications

The CIOB recognises NVQs awarded by Pearson, ProQual, the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and NOCN.
