The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) Academy is launching a free massive open online course (MOOC) on Quality in Construction. This follows the success of the first two construction-focused MOOCs which the CIOB has run previously, attracting thousands of construction professionals.

The three-week interactive course, opening on 21 October 2019, follows two years of work by a CIOB commission of past presidents into the issue of build quality and what practical steps can be taken to support delivery of quality construction projects.

This online course is free and open to anyone working in the built environment sector globally. It has been designed specifically for those working in the industry and for clients and end users who want to learn more about what can be done to achieve quality buildings.

Adrian Montague, Head of the CIOB Academy, said: “This free course will help to open up the conversation on quality in construction and is a continuation of the CIOB’s work to push quality higher up the agenda. We hope to bring the delivery of quality in construction to the front of the minds of those involved with the construction or use of buildings.”
