The course is developed by hugely experienced construction professionals, and the lead trainer is Dr Mike Hammond FCIOB.

He has been a full member of the CIOB since 1996 and became a fellow in 2016.

Dr Hammond has also worked for a number of large consultancies, including Turner & Townsend, and as a lecturer and manager in construction in further education. Before building his own consultancy, he worked as head of research at SummitSkills, the Sector Skills Council for the building services engineering sector.

“The CIOB site management course is an ideal course for those people in management or aspiring to be in management who have not been in formal education for some time, or who are looking to develop their skills,” said Dr Hammond.
