CDM2015 for Designers

Designers have struggled to understand how to interpret their legal and professional duty to design elegant solutions within commercial constraints and to comply with health and safety law while they do so. This course shows how to manage the challenge in a range of practical ways that can deliver lifelong value to clients and asset operators.


A special bonus of three months remote coaching support after the course is included in the cost.
You may prefer the two day project focussed option that allows you to access high level consultancy to help your team apply the approaches learnt on the course on a live project. See the CDM2015 Designer Mentoring.
