Construction

Building Skills for the Future

The first training organisation in Cornwall to be approved as a Construction NVQ Centre, DMT has consistently led the way in innovative, responsive, customer-focused training delivery for the construction industry.

DMT's training centres offer the only alternative to college for off-the-job training and skills development from Entry to Advanced level and we offer a range of delivery methods to suit your requirements - day release, block release, on site assessment, etc..  Methods and patterns can be combined and varied during the training programme to meet your needs.  There are no set course dates or delivery patterns.  Training can start at any time in the year and will be designed with you to tailor delivery to your requirements.

Free training is available through government-funded programmes (see the Programmes and Services section for more information).  We can offer a variety of options to overcome barriers to recruitment and we can design bespoke programmes to meet individual, employer or sector needs.

See also the Training and Development and Health and Safety pages for other skills training relevant to the construction sector.  Why not Contact Us to find out more, tell us about your requirements and arrange a visit to one of our training centres?
