Level 4 in Site Management Certificate & Diploma

Is This Qualification Right For Me?

Construction Management Training assesses every candidate’s suitability for the course.  We will also be happy to advise and discuss with you any other training options.  It is essential to ensure you embark on the right qualification for you, so it’s important that you thoroughly research all your options.

A little information about our qualifications:

The CIOB are the Awarding Organisation for our qualifications:

  • CIOB Level 4 Certificate in Construction Site Management (Ofqual accredited: QAN: 600/0529/4)
  • CIOB Level 4 Diploma in Construction Site Management (Ofqual accredited: QAN: 600/0530/0)
  • CIOB Level 4 Graduate Conversion Certificate (Ofqual accredited units)

Programme Delivery

The Certificate in Site Management Studies will be delivered by interactive distance learning Webex on Saturdays (9am until 4pm).

Programme Content

The Site Management qualification is aimed at both practicing and potential Site Managers in the construction industry; individuals should normally have at least two years’ experience on-site above the level of trade charge hand, with some general responsibility.  However, this does not always apply where applicants can demonstrate other appropriate experiences.  A wide range of backgrounds and differing lengths and levels of experience are catered for within the units.  The course has been designed with the practical entrant in mind and gaining the Site Management Certificate and Diploma provides evidence to employers and clients that an internationally recognised level of study has been successfully completed.  The course is open to advanced candidates.  However, there is no restriction on age but an assessment by the Centre for suitability will be required. 

The full Level 4 qualification may take about two years on a part-time basis to complete, although the length of the qualification does vary dependent on the course delivery timetable.  The certificate is awarded after completion of a minimum of 3 units out of the 9, this includes completion of the compulsory unit ‘Managing Health, Safety, Welfare and Risk in Construction Works’, and the Diploma is then awarded after completion of a further 6 units.  Candidates are also able to complete individual units and gain unit certification, this may count towards CPD or towards a full qualification.  In order to gain the full award there are nine units to complete. These are based on assignment assessments which develop your knowledge and competence in the workplace. 

For those who have already completed the CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), and have current certification, we can apply to the CIOB for exemption of the Health and Safety unit.  Other certificated qualification exemptions may apply. Note that a SMSTS Certificate will only count as a PASS for the ‘Managing Health, Safety, Welfare and Risk in Construction Works’ module. This will be considered after mapping the qualification specification against the particular CIOB unit.
