    Been on the plumbing tools for 21 years, had enough of working on my knees for a living, time to get out before my back/hands/knees start to give me some real trouble...

    Got a Nebosh general cert a few years ago and now I want to expand on my qualifications.

    Can anyone recommend a good trainer Derby/Notts way? has to be block type training, I don't like home study as I prefer to have a trainer to ask stupid questions at!

    So I get the construction cert, what other qualifications should I get for a career in construction safety? PASMA, IPAF? go on some IOSH courses?

    Want to stick to the construction side of safety, try and get a advisor role at some point.

    If construction H&S is what you would prefer then the Construction Cert is a good start.

    It's not that different to the ordinary cert TBH but construction sites sometimes insist on it.

    Maybe get some Fire Safety, Manual handling, etc., specific certs.

    A NRSWA streetworks supervisor ticlet is a useful add-on too

    Get some hands-on H&S experience as an advisor than go for NEBOSH Diploma and get into IOSH.

    I've been in H&S for 25 years and still enjoy the challenge.

    Don't know any trainers but browse here and get some ideas.

    PM me if I can be of any more help
