The course is designed for graduates working in the industry whose academic qualifications are not connected to construction. Suitable candidates will hold a degree in any subject but must be working in a management role in the construction industry.
What is it?
The Graduate Conversion Certificate is a nationally recognised qualification which provides a route to chartered membership for those who hold a degree in a subject unconnected to construction. Learners undertake 5 mandatory units which develop the underpinning knowledge and skills required of a competent construction manager and 1 optional unit to suit their job role from a menu of 7 units. Upon completion of the course, graduates receive a CIOB Level 4 Certificate in Site Management (QCF).
Benefits of taking course?
The CIOB Graduate Conversion Certificate provides a balance of structured classroom learning and practical skills development that supports and develops graduates into a career in the industry.
It gives the learner a QCF accredited qualification at level 4, provides access to the CSCS black card for managers and prepares learners for the professional review and full chartered membership of the CIOB.
Duration: The course does not have a fixed duration but generally takes about 1-2 years to complete on a part-time basis. It can be delivered by e-learning, block release, evening classes or in the workplace.
