Are you aware of your duties and responsibilities under the Construction, Design and Management (CDM) regulations? Our CDM Awareness Training Course provides a thorough understanding of the regulations and key roles of duty holders, along with safety procedures and case studies. Get equipped with the knowledge to ensure compliance and maintain a safe construction site.

According to a recent study, over 10,000 construction workers suffer from work-related illnesses each year, and around 30 workers lose their lives due to work-related accidents. With these statistics in mind, it's clear that effective health and safety procedures are crucial in the construction industry. CDM regulations aim to ensure that construction projects are designed, managed and completed safely, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.

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.
