This CDM course is designed for Project Managers, Site Managers, HSE managers, Advisors, Planners, Coordinators and Officers.

Construction, Design and Environment ensure health and safety are maintained. It is a plan that helps to manage all the possible risks from start to finish. However, it only works when the right person is given the job. So this course will not only take you through CDM in construction, regulations, documents, legislation but also who should be assigned to make the plan. You will also know about the evolution of regulation, who duty holders are, their roles and responsibilities, what the Construction Phase Plan (CPP) is, what it contains, when it should be prepared and who should prepare it.

By the end of this course, you will also get introduced to tools, health and safety file, what should be included in that file, file checklist, who should make the file and what happens to the file after the completion of the work. You will then explore the health and safety aspects and how to put emergency procedures in place to deal with fire, flood and Asphyxiation. Lastly, you will get to read case studies focusing on CDM applied at London Bridge Station Redevelopment and Health and Safety Monitoring Examples at London Bridge Station Redevelopment (LBSR) and grasp valuable lessons and information.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
