A new course has been set up for those wishing to qualify as planning supervisors. Run by Planning Supervisor Services of Hungerford, the course leads to a btec edexcel award, equivalent to an nvq Level 4 or an hnc. Divided into three units, the course will require a total of 40 hours tuition and about 20 hours study. This can be provided in a number of ways, and there may be exemptions from some of the units (although not the examination) for those with relevant experience and learning.

The units cover:

This unit enables candidates to prepare pre-tender and construction-phase h&s plans. It will consolidate experience and skills and include observation, planning, policy, preparation and review, as well as the legal and moral responsibilities in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994.

The course will teach:
