The general and construction-related courses were originally organised by the company for its own employees and that of its parent company the Atkins Group. But in recent months increasing numbers of students are coming from outside organisations, some of them clients of their mainstream project management business, but many simply local employers seeking expert tuition in health and safety matters.
"Although it’s not why we set up these training courses we welcome external delegates," said Paul Cree of Faithful+Gould in Nottingham. "We believe we are the only company outside the specialist training providers to be offering this training to local businesses."
NEBOSH is the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health and its qualifications are recognised and respected by employers in all sectors of the economy. The NEBOSH National General Certificate is designed to help those with health and safety responsibilities, such as managers, supervisors and employee representatives. The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is both for those with construction management responsibilities and for those who are required to provide routine, day-to-day advice on health, safety and welfare in construction work.
"We can stage the training at our own premises in Beechdale Court, Beechdale Road, Nottingham, or remotely to suit the location of the delegates," added Paul Cree.
