CIOB pledges construction management training to support Members expertise

As the accrediting body for Chartered Construction Managers and Chartered Builders, the Chartered Institute of Building has long been recognised as a key source of competence assessment for the construction industry.

But this year the CIOB has committed to do more than just assess people, it has pledged to provide active support for Members and prospective members that will increase their expertise in key areas.

Using state of the art training technology at its new London office CIOB Training brings together specially designed learning packages for construction professionals.  Collaborating with other professional bodies and training organisations the training offers CIOB Member discounts and favourable rates to some of most important knowledge in today’s marketplace.

CIOB Training (which you can view at www.ciob.org/training) offers a wide variety of courses in key areas such as: Construction Project Management; Health and Safety for construction specialists; Building Sustainability, Commercial Awareness and Waste Management.

Chris Blythe, Chief Executive at the CIOB commented: “We have worked hard to put together a package of training which represents a great opportunity for Members to increase the knowledge they need for the next few years.  These courses are not only affordable but flexible and have been arranged over a number of evenings rather than during the day.  Online solutions will also be coming down the track as our support builds momentum.”

Upon launch most training will take place at the CIOB London office but new locations will be added in line with demand.  Building Information Modelling (BIM) training heads the first wave of training to be launched by the CIOB. Heavily subsidised by the Institute BIM training ensures that all Members can get the fundamentals of BIM under their belt.

Those who attend the training will sit an examination in what they have learnt and those who pass the exam will receive a certificate from CIOB.  Staff of Chartered Building Companies or Consultancies and CIOB Training Partnerships can also access CIOB Training at discounted rates.
