CIOB celebrates 30th anniversary of training scheme

The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its Site Management Education and Training Scheme (SMETS).

To date over 10 000 candidates have completed the programmes within the scheme.

The SMETS programme covers the Level 4 Certificate and Diploma in Site Management. The course consists of 14 modules and includes project planning, organising and resourcing projects, health and safety and contractual and legal responsibilities.

On gaining the Level 4 Diploma candidates have access to Associate Membership of the CIOB (ACIOB).

Nick Marsh, CIOB Education Manager commented: "The CIOB acknowledges that regular evaluation of its qualifications is key to their success in the marketplace.

"Flexible modes of study are required by site managers and in response the CIOB is investing in ways to meet these needs including distance learning."

To celebrate the anniversary, a formal luncheon was held recently at Englemere for those who have been involved with the programmes over the years.

Guest speakers included Rt Hon Nick Raynsford MP, Professor Roger Flanagan, CIOB senior vice president, and Dr John Trill, chair of the SMETS working group.

Professor Roger Flanagan said: "The anniversary marks thirty years of success in CIOB site management training and the feedback over the years endorses the benefits of training to the individual and the person's workplace."
