Construction Design and Management for Designers

Course Overview

The CDM Regulations 2007 put a series of duties on contractors, designers and clients involved in construction. This module is designed to update professionals who have been working with the earlier version of the CDM regulations (CDM 1998) or had some experience of the current regulations but wish to have a more detailed understanding. The course follows the same basic structure as our CDM Awareness course but provides more practical detail particularly for designers and clients or those procuring the services of construction professionals.
