CIF launch E-learning platform

Robert Butler, Head of Learning and Development

First course: Sub-contractor contracting & legislation

The CIF Learning & Development Department has launched an E-learning platform aimed at those who want to upskill but don’t have time or can’t travel for class-based courses.

The new CIF’s e-learning platform will allow construction firms and their employees access to quality training without time lost through travel.

Available courses

To see what courses are currently available visit cif.ie/training-and-development . Users have 24-hour access, seven days a week to courses.  Course attendance will help fulfill Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.

Contracting and Legislation areas for sub-contractors

The initial CIF E-learning course focuses on Contracting and Legislation areas for sub-contractors.  However, this course may also be very useful for main contractors as it offers a greater understanding of how the construction contracts and legislation system works for all concerned. This course is hugely important for anyone looking to navigate tendering and procurement.

The programme content has been developed by sectorial experts providing attendees with practical insights that will help organizations’ abilities to tender and operate in their sectors.

Upcoming courses

Across 2017, the CIF E-learning platform will be expanded to include the following content:

  • The Core Safety Management Renewal Programme (Available now) provides an opportunity for those who have already attended our Core Safety programmes (MSIC, PSCS, PSDP) to update knowledge, as well as their cards and certificate.
  • A number of Building Regulations modules, which are currently only available via classroom delivery, for those looking to improve their knowledge and understanding of BCAR and building regulation.
  • An eight-module Industrial Relations programme, which will provide learners with up to date and increased awareness of key Human Resources and Industrial Relations practices.
  • An online site induction programme for workers from all sectors of the industry ahead of working on site.

This range of programmes will be available to CIF members in 2017 and are being rolled out with partners Dillon Production in the coming months.
