Accredited CDM Training 2020

All of our CDM Training focuses at the heart of CDM, the skilful process of Design Risk Management (DRM). DRM is the application of the General Principles of Prevention (PoP) which is the “Art of CDM”. It is not box ticking or creating/using template documents, it is managing design risks so that projects can be built, used, maintained and eventually re-cycled (refurbished or demolished) safely and healthily.


Courses Provided – Accredited by the Association for Project Safety

Title Duration CPD Hours

Any of our courses can be run “In-House” at a venue provided by you or by us. This can be beneficial for a collective business or corporate understanding of the regulations, as well as being cost effective for 6 or more people. Additionally, you can allocate space for attendance by others so you can recover some of your financial commitment – talk to us about your needs especially if you also need RIBA certification.

This course is aimed at the PD Role. It is a must for all PD’s appointed to the duty holder position for any kind of project. Additionally on our course, you will gain knowledge for providing CDM Advisory Services to CDM duty holders including, Clients, Principal Designers, Designers, Principal Contractors and Contractors. For evidence of your personal SKE and corporate capability you should attend this course if you want to know how to be a PD for any type of construction project. It is not just for architects.
