CEEQUAL offers training courses designed to prepare individuals who want to complete formal CEEQUAL Assessments. The training courses involve classroom-based learning which prepare those who complete the course to undertake an Assessment using either CEEQUAL Version 5 or CEEQUAL Version 6. As well as developing knowledge of the CEEQUAL manual and the assessment process, the training courses also add context to the environmental and social issues covered by the scheme. Upon completion, attendants receive a copy of the CEEQUAL manual and a certificate confirming their qualification.
Whether planning on becoming a CEEQUAL Assessor or simply expanding your knowledge of CEEQUAL and its use, the CEEQUAL training courses give participants the platform to develop. The nature of the CEEQUAL scheme means that course attendees usually have prior experience and interest in civil engineering, public realm works or environment and sustainability issues. A knowledge base in any of these areas will be helpful in the process of an Assessment. However, there is no need to be an ‘expert’ in these areas to become a trained Assessor. To become a CEEQUAL Verifier you must be a trained Assessor.
Training courses to become a qualified CEEQUAL Assessor are held regularly throughout the UK and internationally upon request.
CEEQUAL Project Assessor
The CEEQUAL Projects Assessor Training Course has been designed so that everyone who completes it successfully will be able to undertake an Assessment using either CEEQUAL Version 5 or CEEQUAL Version 6. The two-day course for new Assessors includes lunch and refreshments on both days, a copy of the CEEQUAL manual, and supporting course materials. Accommodation is not included. Courses usually run on Day 1 from 9.15am (for a 9.30am start) to 5.15pm finish and on Day 2 from 9.00am to a 4.30pm finish.
The course covers:
- what the CEEQUAL scheme is and why it has been developed;
- use of the appropriate CEEQUAL manual, basic skills required and the role of the Assessor;
- the environmental and social issues covered by the Scheme
- detailed study of each section of the manual including the nature of the questions, reasons for their inclusion and scoping-out advice; and
- the Assessment and Verification process.
Following the training course, all delegates who have reached the required standard will be issued with a CEEQUAL Assessor certificate.
The two-day CEEQUAL Project Assessor training course is also available to anyone who does not plan to become a CEEQUAL Assessor but wishes to gain detailed awareness of how CEEQUAL works and the benefits that can accrue from its use.
