6 Tips for Choosing the Right Construction Training Provider
For construction firms, compliance with Irish laws and regulations concerning construction safety training is a vital consideration. However, this leaves managers and decision makers in a difficult position. How do you choose the right training, provider?
There are many out there, but they are far from equal. Some offer adequate coverage of important areas, while others are sadly lacking. Here are six tips to help make your decision-making process simpler.
1. Accreditation Matters: If the training provider is not accredited, or cannot provide proof of accreditation, you will need to look elsewhere. Make sure any safety training provider you choose is accredited by bodies such as City & Guilds Assured, IOSH and QQI.
2. Instructors: The instructors employed by the training provider should be credentialed, and they should be construction industry veterans with provable experience.
3.Delivery Method: Make certain that the training provider you choose can offer course delivery in a number of formats, including on-premises, and online delivery with live instructors and document sharing.
4.Reputation: Do your due diligence and research each provider you are considering, with an eye for their reputation within the industry. Are they deemed to be innovators and leaders? Do they lag behind other firms?
5.Cost: Cost is a vital consideration, but remember that you get what you pay for. While there is no need to pay exorbitant fees, you should not work with a provider that is drastically lower priced, as this is an indication that the quality of the content is inferior.
6.Content Quality: Finally, make certain that the content in the training course is up to date and covers more than the bare minimum needed for legal compliance.
