You will also show the team you manage that you are capable and qualified in your role.

The qualification will assess your competence in your current job role. Therefore you must be currently working as a Construction Site Manager or in a role at the same level.

You are also required to be aged 16 or above to enrol.

If we find that you are unsuitable for the qualification, we will find another one that fits your credentials.
