Courses / Events
The CIOB plays a leading role in the development and continual improvement of educational standards at a national and international level. The achievement of professionalism at all levels within the construction industry is at the core of CIOB work. In establishing the criteria for membership of the CIOB, the Institute has developed a framework of educational requirements designed to reflect industry needs and provision.

Courses receiving accreditation include Masters, Bachelor Degrees, HND, HNC and other qualifications which match the requirements of the CIOB Education Framework. Full details of all CIOB recognised courses can be found on the website.
