There are two types of coordinator CDM training
courses available, both lasting three days. These are the in- house and accredited course. The in-house CDM training
course is run by the training provider. It will provide a certificate of attendance, but is not acknowledged by any accrediting body. The accredited CDM training
courses are recognised by an official accrediting body. However it is crucial to be aware that, no CDM course will, on its own, accredited you as a CDM coordinator. The accredited courses are designed to help you shorten the process of accreditation, not convey accreditation. There are still a number of additional requirements you will need to fulfil.
The additional requirements for accreditation as a CDM Coordinator include achieving the necessary points to be eligible to qualify for the registration and then completing that four stage process. (Please note this is for the Association of Project Safety (APS) accredited courses and other accrediting bodies may have different requirements.)
