CIOB Academy builds up investment in online CPD
Over the last two and half years the CIOB Academy has consistently grown and developed and is now the home to a variety of offline and in-person training. Many CM readers have been through CIOB training and possibly worked towards CIOB membership and chartered status with the help of these courses.
The academy is also home to the CIOB’s online CPD offering, which includes numerous online CPD learning packages that have been available – to all – for free. CIOB says that the move into online CPD has been a tremendous success, with nine out of 10 users citing a positive learning experience.
The institute is now making some changes to the academy’s CPD portal to invest in more online learning.
All CIOB members will continue to benefit from unlimited free access to the hundreds of pieces of CPD learning already produced plus the new learning yet to be published.
However, for non-member customers, they will be introducing a charge per piece of CPD. This charge is intended to support the investment of new content to keep users ahead of the competition, while demonstrating the value of CIOB membership. From July 2019 the institute will charge non-CIOB members £10 per CPD package.
Members can continue to access the CIOB’s CPD by logging in to their members portal account at www.ciob.org and find the code. This code can then be input at the checkout on the academy website: www.ciobacademy.org.
The CIOB is also going to continue producing free learning, available to all, such as the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), including the forthcoming MOOC on construction quality.
