Construction Design and Management (CDM) training

CDM 2015 is the common abbreviation for the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. The regulation requires businesses to appoint competent people in specific roles and ensure they carry out specific tasks. The aim is to improve the overall health, safety, and welfare of those working in construction.

In just one day, this CDM training for project managers ensures that key duty holders understand their legal obligations under the CDM Regulations 2015. Delegates will gain a detailed understanding of the regulation and how to ensure compliance throughout the entire project lifecycle.

If required, we can develop a bespoke programme that focuses the learning outcome on your specific requirements.
