Faithful+Gould, which has offices in Warrington, Liverpool and Manchester, has become one of four firms to be accredited by the Association for Project Safety as a training provider of its management of Construction Design and Management Co-ordination course.
The course is aimed at those within the construction industry who wish to practice as CDM Co-ordinators and manage the requirements of CDM Co-ordination to a professional and benchmarked standard set by APS. CDM is a regulation enforced by Government covering on-site safety.
Faithful+Gould senior health and safety advisor, Steven Collins, led the company's accreditation and will be responsible for co-ordinating the three-day course.
Collins said: "The course will benefit those already working as CDM Co-ordinators who wish to check their standard of practice and to have it acknowledged, in addition to providing an insight to others interested in the practice but not yet working in a CDM role."
The course will initially be held at three Faithful+Gould venues throughout the year and is available to all of the firm's 27 UK offices, with plans to market the courses to the external audience in the latter half of 2009.
