The Professional Review is the final stage to gaining the CIOB Chartered qualification. All candidates who successfully complete the process are entitled to use the designation MCIOB. Applications can only be considered from those candidates who meet the academic requirements and can demonstrate the relevant experience. You can find out more on the Routes to Membership page.
Professional Review candidates will be assessed in the following areas: occupational competence, management competence and commitment to professionalism.
You can listen to the CIOB Special Projects Manager explain how the new Professional Review process is going to work. She responds to some of the most frequently asked questions.
