CIOB launches training programmes in China

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is set to finalise an agreement with the Institute of International Engineering Project Management (IIEPM) at Tsinghua University Beijing, and The Research Centre for International Construction Economics and Management in Chongqing University (RCICEM), to deliver training programmes aimed at experienced construction professionals in China.

These programmes will equip candidates with the necessary skills, and training, to develop as a modern construction or project management professional operating in China at national and international levels.

Fabio Casula The CIOB’s head of international commented: “These programmes have been created to respond to the demands for international professional training in construction in China, where we have a leading position as a professional body.

“China is undergoing massive infrastructure projects across many regions. The World Bank has predicted that by 2015 half of the world’s new building and construction will take place in China; our intention is to establish these programmes and then roll them out in other areas of China in the near future.”
