Default MCIOB

Hi all
has anybody on here got their MCIOB
Im trying to find out a few things
firstly , is it actually recognised in Canada I’ve read somewhere its the equivalent to a gold seal?. Is that the case and what is the gold seal?
secondly does it get more points on the CRS score for example would it be classed as a degree by WES?
Many thank

I can’t help with whether or not it’s recognised in Canada but I’ve just Googled to see what it is and it looks like a professional qualification? So would be very unlikely to be worth any points on the CRS, but definitely include it in your ECA app just in case.

And do please come back and let us know what WES say about it, for anybody searching the forum in the future.

Good luck.

The Construction Institute of Canada is in negotiations with CIOB regarding mutual recognition.
Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB)
• Reciprocity currently being sought.
FAQ: The Construction Institute of Canada
Gold Seal Construction Certification: https://www.goldsealcertification.co...June302020.pdf
I would suggest contacting the Gold Seal admin - see email at the bottom of this page - and ask if there is a way to challenge the Gold Seal exam, based on experience / hours worked + international training. You will probably need to get your employers in the UK / elsewhere to document all hours worked and certify that you met all requirements.


I don't know how well known the 'Gold Seal' is for Construction Managers - you may want to look into the more commonly recognised Certifications- and whether you will need Provincial Certification (it may be regulated in some Provinces)

What is your NOC code?
