Academically Qualified Person

The Academically Qualified Person card is available to people who have completed certain construction related degrees, HNDs, HNCs, CIOB Certificates and certain NEBOSH diplomas and certificates. This card is valid for five years.

Use the Card Finder tool to find out if your academic qualification is accepted for the AQP card. Enter your qualification into Card Finder and follow the steps on screen.

To apply for the card, applicants will need to supply a copy of their qualification and where possible evidence of the units achieved within the qualification.

All applicants must pass the CITB Managers and Professionals Health, Safety and Environment Test or the alternative CIC Health and Safety Test.
