The BDMA Commercial Damage Management Accreditation (ComTech)

The Commercial Damage Management accreditation has been developed by the BDMA to formally recognise the specific skills and experience needed for individuals who work predominantly in the commercial damage management sector. It is open to any current BDMA member from Associate to Accredited.

BDMA Certificate in Site Health & Safety – Part 1 of the Commercial Damage Management Accreditation
General Health & Safety on site – Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Working at Height, Asbestos Awareness, Working in Confined Spaces, Manual Handling, Accident Reporting (RIDDOR), Fire Safety, Electrical Safety, Risk Assessment, Noise Awareness, and COSHH followed by an overall assessment.

The BDMA Certificate in Site Health & Safety (ComTech Part 1) is available as a standalone course to non-members as well as members.  However, you will need to be a BDMA member to continue to Part 2 of the Commercial Damage Management course so if you intend to do this it will be more cost effective to join the BDMA as an Associate and obtain a discount.

*If you are already a BDMA accredited Technician, Senior Technician or Claims Technician you will have access to The BDMA Certificate in Site Health & Safety (ComTech Part 1) free as part of your membership.*
