CIOB Chartered Membership Programme


The Chartered Membership Programme (CMP) is a route to MCIOB for individuals with
significant experience. It enhances practical skills with a knowledge based programme.

The CMP was previously known as the Experienced Practitioner Assessed programme
(EPA). Typically, those enrolling on the programme will have worked in a management role
for five years. However, the programme is also suitable for a wide range of technical and
specialist professionals working in the construction industry. The programme also forms a
progression route to MCIOB for candidates who have completed the CIOB Site
Management Programmes.

The modules are delivered through the CIOB’s Moodle-based virtual learning platform, with
one open book online examination being marked by the CIOB examiners.
