Study that Fits your Schedule


Firstly, the CIOB Level 4 Diploma in Site Management is an ideal solution for any construction worker hoping to further their career without giving up their work or home life. So, if you’re looking to move into managerial roles within construction then this qualification is the right choice for you. Moreover, the Site Management course is split into 2 separate qualifications. The Certificate and the Diploma. While both are prestigious CIOB qualifications in their own right, gaining both will give you a complete education in Construction Site Management.

CIOB Level 4 Certificate

The CIOB Level 4 Certificate in Site Management takes 6 months to complete and consists of 3 modules including the mandatory Unit 3-Managing Health, Safety and Well-being in Construction Works. Furthermore, once you have a Level 4 Certificate you will then be eligible to apply for the CSCS White Card.

CIOB Level 4 Diploma

In addition, the CIOB level 4 Diploma in Site Management takes another year (therefore 18 months including 6 months spent gaining your Certificate) to complete and is made up of 9 modules. Once you have a Level 4 Diploma you will then be eligible to apply for the CSCS Black Card. Similarly, the qualification develops your ability to plan and programme projects, liaise with stakeholders and oversee large or complex construction projects safely and efficiently.


The Regulatory Qualifications Framework (RQF) now regulates CIOB qualifications. Gaining the Site Management Certificate and Diploma provides evidence to employers and clients that you have achieved an internationally recognised level of qualification. In addition, having experienced Site Managers with this qualification helps employers to satisfy regulatory health and safety and other EU requirements. Moreover, the course develops all the necessary knowledge and skills you’ll need to run a successful construction project.

Excellent lecturers and perfect teaching methods

CCM is an online College that is very helpful to achieve professional growth and success through effective techniques. Thanks to excellent lecturers and perfect teaching methods, I have gained valuable knowledge in my career and all courses have contributed to my professionalism better than ever. As for me, I am the Managing Director at QS Company, able to share my academic knowledge and technology in my field of work. Especially after the Covid 19 pandemic and the global crisis, there are too many disputes and problems for Claims in the parties involved in the Construction Industry. Thanks to the academic knowledge in the CCM course I can make perfect solutions with good results. Although CCM Lectures are online courses; we can learn as an in person class with live stream section. The CCM department is knowledgeable in very effectively using the online nature and techniques of the program and every team member always provides a promotional response. I have achieved Dip in PPM, Pro Dip in FIDIC and Certificate in Claims Preparation and Dispute Management  from CCM. Thanks much to all of the CCM team and lectures, I Wish the CCM great success.

Recommend this Route

I have been delighted with the level of service and professionalism received from the CCM and I would recommend this route to Chartership to others who are considering gaining membership through CIOB. This route cuts out the need to rely on colleagues and peers for support and if you are willing to put in the work, you can really gain membership in as little as 2-4 months.

In a forensic delay analysis course, participants learn how to analyze delays in construction projects and determine the cause and effect of those delays. Testimony in such a course may involve presenting a case study where a delay occurred in a construction project and explaining how the delay was analyzed and resolved. In addition, cover the legal aspects of delay analysis, including the role of delay analysis in resolving disputes between parties involved in a construction project. Participants may also learn about best practices for conducting a forensic delay analysis and how to present their findings in a clear and concise manner. Overall, the goal for a forensic delay analysis course is to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the process of analyzing delays in construction projects and to provide practical skills for conducting such analysis in real-world scenarios.

Just superb!

The content & the depth of the course material, the knowledge of the lecturers & the way Moodle is set up, is just superb!  For a working person like myself, I could access Moodle with the lectures any time. I could even choose from the recorded lectures of previous seasons’ modules or go with the live lectures. The material in each module is holistic. There is adequate reference and links to books, articles, design codes…etc. The lecturers were easily accessible. The assignments were prepared in a manner that served to test the understanding of concepts as well as a recap of the course material.

The course is great for practicing professionals

The Contract Management course was suitable for me to compile my practical knowledge and structuring them to use effectively as flaws and doubts prevailing are eliminated after this study. This course covers knowledgeable material and individual can develop employable skill and having bright chances to be employed. The course is great for practicing professionals who acquired practical knowledge but lack theoretical understanding and require certification of their skills which is formally endorsed by CIArb.

I would recommend the college and the CMP course

Before joining the lectures I had my unknown fears that how would I understand the subject and study materials because of online lectures. But really I appreciate the lecturers who made lectures so descriptive, explanatory and to easily understand. During the lecture I like one thing most that after explaining each topic they put a question for us to know our concentration and understanding towards the lecture. I would recommend the college and the Chartered Membership Programme.
