The Professional Review checks that you have the right knowledge, skills and experience in three areas of competence: occupational, management and commitment to professionalism.

Skills4Stem run in-house group half day (3hr) workshops in the UK, Ireland, US and Middle East to support applicants through the CIOB Professional Review process and are approved by CIOB to pre-assess the applications ensuring a quicker turnaround on each application.

Applying for the Professional Review

  • Step 1: Academic requirements
    You need to have met the academic requirements before starting your application. You’ll need to contact us to check.
  • Step 2: Membership
    You must already be a non-Chartered member of the CIOB. If you aren’t a member yet, you will need to register for an online account and then apply for membership. Start the process here.
  • Step 3: The Professional Review form
    We can provide you with the correct form for you.
  • Guidance notes
    You’ll need to read the guidance notes that you’ll receive with the form, which detail the supporting documents we require with your application, for example, an up-to-date personal CV and maybe a record of your CPD.
  • Verification
    Your application will need to be endorsed by your line manager, a client or a construction professional who knows you well. Find out more in the guidance notes you’ll receive with your application.

Which form is for you?

There are three Professional Review forms. The one you’ll need depends on your experience and qualifications. After you’ve contacted us to confirm you can apply, and joined the CIOB as a non-Chartered member.

  • Professional Review for those working in the industry
    This is the most common Professional Review form, for all applicants except those with selected Level 7 NVQ Diplomas or those working in the academic field.
  • NVQ Professional Review
    This is a route with a much shorter form for those with a Pearson Edexcel Level 7 NVQ Diploma in Construction Senior Management or Built Environment Design and Consultancy Practice. If you have a different NVQ or other qualification you’ll need to fill in the Industry route form.
  • Professional Review for academics
    This tailored route is suitable if you are a teacher, lecturer or researcher, and you do not have direct experience of working on site, or have not worked on site for a while.
