Nearly everybody demonstrates competence through the WAMITAB route and although that might be best for the vast majority of people, there is an approved alternative and we are one of the only Centres that can offer you this option.
The CMS is a very different way of demonstrating technical competence as it looks at the whole company rather than just that of one individual.
The clients we have worked with on the CMS have found it to be quite a different experience as it involves working with each member of the workforce and not just a single manager. This doesn’t necessarily make it more difficult and the companies actually found it to be very useful as it enabled them to look at all aspects of the company, particularly in terms of site safety and permit compliance.
A positive to the CMS for some companies is that you are not locked into specific individuals with WAMITAB qualifications. Instead the CMS can be used to ‘qualify’ a number of managers through an internal training and competence programme. Having said that, for some a downside is that it can involve setting up a lot of systems and procedures if they are not already in place.
The CMS is probably an option that you were not aware of and as always, it will work for some, but not all. Therefore give us a call to chat through the option to see if it might be right for you.
See below for a Case Study of the work we undertook with a client, progressing them to their CMS certification.
