Raising the Standard The recent NDTG annual general meeting - traditionally little more than a formality - was thrown into turmoil when chairman-in-waiting Richard Comley was forced to decline the opportunity to take his rightful place at the helm due to health issues.
Dolman's unexpected election comes at a time of transition for the NDTG.
Despite swingeing cuts to grant funding, the NDTG enjoyed its busiest ever year in 2011, delivering well over 30,000 training hours and qualifying more than 4,200 CCDO card holders.
"And perhaps the most significant step forward is the agreement reached between the NDTG, NFDC and the UK Contractors' Group that sees demolition qualifications recognised in their own right as part of a new universal training standard."
That standard is designed to support UKCG's work in increasing competency and improving leadership in health and safety by developing knowledge and skill and marks an impressive achievement by the NFDC and NDTG in safeguarding recognition of demolition specific training standard across the wider construction industry.
"This is a fantastic step in getting demolition training standards recognised on construction sites across the length and breadth of the UK," says NDTG chairman Richard Dolman.
"I am sure there will still be some hurdles to overcome before this standard is universally accepted, but NDTG members can rest assured that we will continue to assist them with any ongoing recognition issues."
