Kingerlee completed almost 3000 hours of training during the 2007/2008 training plan which expired on 31st July 2008. The new 2008/2009 training plan began on 1st August 2008 and currently contains 2300 hours of training. Staff Personal Reviews took place throughout October 2008 and further training requirements will be identified as a result of this.
Training is open to all Kingerlee employees, with courses being run and facilitated both in-house and externally. Some of the many courses in the current plan are First Aid, Asbestos Awareness, Control and Safe Use of Cranes, Contracts Awareness and Updates, Forklift and Telehandler, Management Training, Time Management, Appraisal Skills, Manual Handling, IT Training, Health and Safety, Scaffold Training and SMSTS courses.
The ten members of our management team who successfully completed the Direct Membership exams to become members of the Institute of Building, attended the Chartered Institute of Building graduation ceremony in 2007, which was held in Ascot. More members of staff are currently taking these exams with another ceremony planned for the near future.
