The CCDO Scheme goes Smart
Published: September 12, 2016
From the 1st September 2016 all NDTG completed training courses will result in one of the new style CCDO Smart Cards cards being issued.
The Certificate of Competence for Demolition Operatives (CCDO) scheme has conducted a comprehensive review of the scheme to better meet the needs of the demolition sector.
From 1st September 2016, all CCDO cards will be issued in accordance with the new CCDO Smart Card Scheme criteria and rules applied with a requirement to:
- have or be registered for and working towards attaining an industry relevant NVQ
- successfully attain the relevant Demolition Health, Safety & Environment Touch Screen Test
- attend a National Demolition Training Group (NDTG) approved asbestos awareness course and card specific approved CCDO course with end test
The card scheme has also gone SMART, which means that a Demolition Operative’s complete training records can be accessed on site using an easy to use card reader and software via a smartphone, tablet or PC, making it simpler and quicker for operative to access site, whilst at the same time, as a manager or supervisor ensuring that an operative has the correct skills and competence to work on site.
NFDC Chief Executive Howard Button commented “The Demolition Industry is operating at the very forefront of the construction industry, and today’s launch of the CCDO Smart Card Scheme shows just how technologically advanced we are. Howard Button also revealed that the NDTG is looking to extend the scheme to include Demolition Plant to provide a one card solution.
