Since 2017, CIOB Academy has been successfully providing support to professionals mainly in the UK and across the globe in gaining valuable professional and technical skills to ensure they continue to provide the highest standards of service to those in the built environment.

Currently, the Academy has operated using a small team based in the UK. In line with the growth aspirations in the CIOB’s Corporate Plan, and to best serve the needs of global professionals and members, it has become important to create a series of global learning hubs that will be focused on providing the same quality of product to specific regions where CIOB is looking to increase its influence and membership.  

The CIOB Academy MENA was launched in February 2021 and has been steadily growing and establishing a foundation throughout the region. It began by offering local courses in Gulf Standard Time, and in June delivered its first course on contracts to 17 attendees. In September it plans to launch the first ever course delivered in Arabic for the CIOB Academy.  

Justin Hall, the first CIOB Training Manager internationally to be placed in the Middle East, said: 

“The vision of the Academy is to lead and inspire Excellence in the built environment by being the premier provider of training services in the construction sector, and to develop collaborative knowledge sharing culture among the global team using different approaches considering people and regions. I have a real excitement and passion to ensure that the Academy is a real success in the region, so that we can continue with the growth aspirations and ensure other professionals from the built environment can access the CIOB Academy around the world.” 

CIOB Academy has a local online store offering the full range of courses and allows payment in local currency of AED. This can be accessed at https://ciob-academy-mena.zbni.co/
