The cidb calls on women-owned contractors with 51% shares, registered in grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 within General Building and Civil Engineering classes of works, to apply for Construction Management System (CMS) training. Construction Management System enables a business to implement a framework of processes and procedures to control its construction risks, improve performance and deliver better client value. In the long term, the cidb will add the CMS standard as criteria for grading on the Register of Contractors.
- health and safety management.
- quality management; and
- environmental management (covering air, water, land, and waste).
The CMS training programme is for the business owner or the contractor’s representative. The representative must be a permanent employee. Training will last 12 months and consists of two modules that will be presented at a workshop over five days of classroom sessions, implementing the CMS in the contractor’s organisation with support and a resources website. Prospective applicants will be required to undergo a pre-qualifying selection test.
Selection of successful applicants will be based on the following criteria:
- Active cidb registration in grades 5 to 8 GB and CE.
- 51% women-owned company.
- The participants must be competent to attend an NQF 5-level training course.
Interested and qualifying contractors will only contribute 10% (R2 300,00) towards training, and the 90% will be covered by cidb through the B.U.I.L.D Fund. I have attached the application forms and also can be downloaded from our website, and they can either be emailed, hand-delivered or posted to the following addresses:
