The National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC) and National Demolition Training Group (NDTG) are pleased to announce the purchase of Vitalia House in Paradise Industrial Estate, Hemel Hempstead.
The building will soon be the new home for the NDTG to undertake demolition, health and safety and construction related training. Currently the NFDC and NDTG share the adjacent Resurgam House but an increase in enquiries from the demolition and construction industry for specific training has prompted the group to look at expansion.
Plans for Vitalia House include the construction of two large dedicated training rooms, a large purpose built room to house the very popular demolition simulator along with a large indoor practical training area. Construction work at Vitalia House is due to start imminently with the first trainees using the facility by August 2015.
NDTG Lead Trainer/Assessor, Iain Kirk commented on the expansion; “The new training facility will give the NDTG more scope in course delivery and will enable us to train more individuals in making the demolition and construction industries a safer place to work.”
Miranda Martin, NDTG Manager, explained that the expansion for the NDTG will be a major benefit to the demolition industry; “Vitalia House will give the NDTG greater flexibility in providing courses keeping the NDTG at the forefront of bespoke training for both our Members and customers in the demolition industry. The provision for a dedicated room to house the demolition plant simulator will greatly improve the ability to offer specific training courses in plant operation.”
The NDTG offer a wide variety of course subjects for all levels of the demolition industry from general site operative through to demolition management. General construction safety course are also offered along with tailored demolition plant training including high reach excavator and skid steer loader. Courses can be held at the NDTG premises in Hemel Hempstead or at clients own premises if required. The NDTG issued over 12,000 certificates to successful candidates in 2014 and the expansion into Vitalia House will provide a significant increase in these figures for 2015.
