CDM REGULATIONS 2015: DESIGNER TRAINING EVENTS

Cost-effective events for CDM 2015 Designers and Principal Designers

This training provides a 2-3 hour updating and discussion session for busy architects and others regarding the CDM Regulations 2015 and in particular the new Designer and Principal Designer (PD) responsibilities.

The event delivers high quality CPD in your own offices at a time to suit you with minimum disruption to the business.

Before a practice can be appointed as a Designer or PD the client must satisfy themselves that the practice has the necessary skills, knowledge, experience and organisational capability. The practice may not accept such appointments unless they fulfil this condition.

The events are informed by my 17 years experience in managing HSE Construction Operations.

Please see details below and call me on 01462 612381 to discuss your needs.

Best wishes
