After “months of hard work”, the recently-launched Malta Chamber of Construction Management (MCCM) has published its membership statute and officially opened up to applications from aspiring members.
Under the statute, aspiring members are able to apply for membership under one of three tiers, depending on their academic qualifications and experience.
For Tier One (Construction Project Manager) level, members must be holders of a degree, or other equivalent academic level, and have a minimum of two years’ experience in a Construction Management role.
For Tier Two (Construction Site Manager), members must be holders of a diploma or equivalent level of academic certification in Construction Management and have a minimum of two years’ experience in a Construction Management role.
Tier Three (Associate Member) requires holders to have a minimum of five years’ experience in the Construction Industry or be holders of a Diploma/Certificate MQF/EQF Level 5 in Construction Management.
It is a system that is intended to allow the MCCM to welcome members from across the Construction Management community.
In comments to BusinessNow.mt, President Jesmond Chetcuti explained: “as we always advocated, membership is going to be available not only to the Construction Project Managers but also to other members of the Construction Management community”.
“We are doing this as we believe that the local construction industry, especially the management sector, requires an institution that not only represents their interests but more importantly assists them in their career progression and development”, he expanded.
Applications will be reviewed by the Construction Managers’ Membership Board, which was announced in April.
Following the review of each application, the board will prepare a report that will eventually guide “each and every applicant” as to the recommended route to achieve membership to the category of their choosing.
In other recent news, the Construction Managers’ chamber last week announced a partnership with ABLY Resources, “to upscale the local construction-built environment and the professions that operate within it”.
At the time, Mr Chetcuti commented: “Forging alliances with other professional bodies is for the common good of our industry”.
“Through this agreement with ABLY Resources, one of the benefits the MCCM is targeting is to not only be able to make its mission and vision heard locally but also abroad, especially to those professionals that are looking at Malta as a country where they can aspire to work and settle”, he added.
