NI CIOB awards celebrate exam success
CITB NI hosted another successful CIOB lecture and awards evening in January, acknowledging local students in their professional exams in 2018.
The lecture was presented by Heron Bros and focused on its work in completing the £27m Foyle College, which was awarded the overall winner in the Construction Excellence Awards 2018.
Certificates were awarded to 34 candidates who successfully passed their CIOB examinations last year through QTAS and Training LMS training organisations.
Peter Clarke (QTAS) (pictured right) was presented with the Best Overall Performance Award for his outstanding results in the CMP programme in 2018 – achieving both the highest marks in Ireland and overseas.
Gary Blair, CIOB Belfast Hub chair, praised the candidates’ work. “There are more candidates than ever going through the CMP programme in Ireland, which is testimony to the standing in which chartership of the institute is now regarded – and the standard is also rising year on year,” he said.
The award for the best full-time final year Ulster University Student BSc (Hons) Construction Engineering & Management was also presented to Mark Kitson.
As part of the ceremony, certificates were awarded to those who gained top grades in GCSE Construction and Built Environment in 2018. First place was awarded to Craig Francey of Dunclug College, Ballymena. Second place went to Rebecca Gilbert of Rainey Endowed School, Magherafelt, and third to Nathan Nelson of Ballymena Academy.
