Former admin worker and mini bus driver, Rita Todd, recently retrained at the Construction Training Centre, having passed the CPCS Forward-Tipping Dumper Training course.

The Construction Training Centre is based in the South West, near Bristol, just five minutes from the M5 and offers; plant training, health and safety courses, scaffolding courses, driver training and warehousing courses.

Rita impressed whilst on her course, gaining 100% on her practical and 95% on her theory, making her the first female to pass this course with us.

She is part of the ‘100 Women First’ campaign and has gained employment at Alun Griffiths, working on the UK’s first commercial smart campus, in Bridgwater.

“I would highly recommend visiting the Construction Training Centre, whether you want to upskill or learn a new skill, the trainers are brilliant – I would definitely recommend the Forward-Tipping Dumper course!”
