Lean construction courses launched

New training courses in lean construction techniques are being launched this week in a bid to improve on-site efficiency and reduce waste.
The new BTEC Level 3 Advanced Award in Construction Lean Improvement Techniques will be awarded by the Construction Lean Improvement Programme (CLIP). The qualification has been developed with the training body RDI and awarding body Edexcel. 'We have responded to the wishes of companies to recognise individuals' skills and input into company improvement,' said CLIP director Martin Watson. 'Having employees in lean construction will provide real evidence to customers and suppliers that a company is serious about doing things better.'The first trainees were enrolled this week. They will undertake 30 hours of training over the course of 15 days.Assessment will be based on observation of their working practices and on written responses to questions.The BTEC can provide credit towards institution membership, said Watson.
