The Academy was officially launched at a reception at the Gherkin in London on 12 December and will significantly increase CIOB’s training provision. It is primarily intended to help people become chartered, but it will also help people improve overall skills and move up through the industry.
Courses will cover a wide range of subjects to suit different roles and levels, including; becoming a certified specialist in low-carbon and green construction, understanding BIM and big data, and developing skills to become a future leader in management and business strategy.
Adrian said, “The Academy is the home for all CIOB training, and will look to assist those in construction to progress their careers, gain CIOB membership and continue to demonstrate excellence in their work.”
At the launch event, James Wates, chair of the CITB and former president of the CIOB, said, “Professionalism in construction is as important as it is in the medical industry, people need to continuous improvement and training in order to maintain high standards.”
