Equipping yourself with the Certified Quantity Surveyor (CQS) designation highlights to clients that you have the technical skills and experience to deliver the full complement of core quantity surveying services.

CQS is available to professionals who have been an AIQS Voting member (Associate/Member or Fellow) in Good Standing (Voting membership held prior to January 2017), and new applicants to Voting membership. CQS applicants must be currently undertaking Quantity Surveying work.

Alternatively, non-AIQS Voting members can apply for CQS designation concurrently with their Member grade application.
