Equipping yourself with the Certified Quantity Surveyor (CQS) designation highlights to clients that you have experience and knowledge that spans across the three Quantity Surveying core competencies (pre-contract, contract documentation, and post-contract).

CQS is available to professionals who have been an AIQS corporate member (Associate/Member or Fellow) for more than three consecutive years or those who have more than five years Quantity Surveying experience and are applying for Member grade.  Please note that CQS is a designation that sits alongside your membership grade.
