The morning session of the course is designed to prepare candidates for the successful completion of the NAMM City and Guilds NPTC Assessment and will include a comprehensive study of the NAMM Code of Working Practice and how it relates to the British Standard BS8415.

An in-depth theoretical induction as to what will be expected on the NAMM City and Guilds NPTC Assessment day will include Health & Safety aspects leading to the generation of professional Risk Assessment documentation. The course also includes practical advice and guidance as to what will be expected on the NAMM City and Guilds Assessment day and provide a comprehensive understanding of accredited ground anchors and how they are applied etc.

The afternoon session of the course is a practical demonstration using at least one of the accredited ground anchors.  There will be an opportunity to ask questions after the demonstration.

Safety Inspection and Assessment of Memorials in Burial Grounds

A training course structured around the Ministry of Justice guidelines ‘Managing the Safety of Burial Ground Memorials’ focusing on a ‘Risk Assessment’ based approach. All aspects of memorial assessment will be covered in the course, from understanding different types of natural stone and the way in which it changes with time, through to memorial construction and how this might impact decisions on safety.  The important area of ‘making safe’ will also be included.

The morning will be spent in the classroom studying in-depth theory and the afternoon will be spent putting the theory into practice.

Please note this course does not qualify you to carry out safety inspections.  Successful completion of a half-day, written and practical assessment, following attendance on the course, is required for candidates to be awarded the nationally accredited qualification: NAMM City & Guilds NPTC Certificate of Competence for the Safety Inspection and Assessment of Memorials.
