CDM 2015: Principal Designer- 2 Day

Since 1995 CSC has provided training for thousands of delegates associated with CDM 94 & 7. The revised CDM regulations 2015 came into force on the 6th April and CSC are continuing to provide effective and dynamic training for these regulations.
They contain important changes related to when and how they are applied, including changes to detailed requirements on various duty holders and associated documentation.
The new role of the principal designer needs careful consideration and is not a direct replacement of the CDM Coordinator. If you are appointed or may be appointed as the PD you need to understand what to do and how to carry out the role.
Not knowing that you are the PD could be a very expensive mistake to make and could lead to a criminal prosecution which your professional indemnity insurance will not protect you against.
This 2-day course is designed to give delegates not only a clear and concise overview of the regulations and the associated guidance but explores the PD’s role in depth.
