Principal Designer

These 'hands-on' courses are specifically aimed at Designers wanting to take on the Principal Designer role, and explore the practicalities of design risk management. 

Courses are between 2 and 3 days in duration*. The scope of material covered is similar to our “Management of Pre-construction Health and Safety” specification, but there is a greater focus and emphasis on the statutory PD role and DRM. Delegates will receive practical guidance and illustration on how to discharge the PD role in a proportionate manner, for any size of project. 

The course includes practical workshops on how to discharge the PD role.  

*the course will be a minimum of 2 days, but may be longer depending on the individual provider’s approach and emphasis. Some course providers may also include accreditations and approvals from other professional bodies. We suggest that you talk directly with the course providers about your particular needs.
