Frequently Asked Questions

Many of our courses can be funded through the CITB or other funding organisations. We are usually only able to offer funded courses to individuals that are part of one of our member companies.
CCDO stands for Certificate Of Competence Of Demolition Operative. The CCDO scheme is approved by the demolition industry. Many Demolition and Construction site managers now request that workers hold the relevant CCDO card before being allowed access to the site to carry out demolition related activities. The NDTG is the only organisation that issues CCDO cards and our training courses ensure that you or your workforce are fully compliant with the scheme.
Many (but not all) sites now require CCDO accreditation. All NFDC member sites will require workers to hold the correct CCDO card before they start work on site.
Our smart cards feature a chip which can be scanned by the site manager at the point of entry to the site. It then shows the holders experience and qualifications. Site Managers can use the system to ensure their workforce is fully compliant with the card scheme. The scheme speeds up the task of checking cards and helps to reduce and eliminate the possibility of fraudulent cards being used to access sites. and chips are readable via a Smartphone app, tablet or card reader attached to a PC.
New applicants have the choice of being issued with a Virtual CCDO Smart Card in addition to a physical CCDO Smart Card. The virtual card works by way of an application downloaded to the cardholders phone, saving the need to carry cards on site. All CCDO cards can now be stored on the Vircarda App. The virtual card is then scanned by the site Supervisor on entry to the site, using the same software used for reading a physical card.
When you request a Virtual Smart Card on your CCDO card application form, you will need to install Vircarda on your device. This app is free of charge from Google Play, The Windows Store, and The App Store. Please provide your mobile number and email address when applying for the Smart Card.
The NFDC and NDTG work tirelessly to ensure that the card scheme is being upheld across members of both the training group and the Federation. In fact, being a member of the NFDC is reliant on having a fully carded workforce.
The NDTG is not responsible for who is allowed to work on site and who isn't. Our role as the card issuer is to ensure that everyone that we issue a card to is fully qualified to perform the tasks required by their job. If you lose your CCDO card and have to wait for a replacement, you may lose out on work. This is down to individual site rules and the discretion of the site supervisor.
There is a charge to replace lost or damaged CCDO cards of £30+VAT. Contact the admin team directly as soon as a card is lost to ensure a prompt replacement.
CCDO Card Renewals are required to keep you safe on-site and ensure your knowledge and skills are always up to date. Refreshing skills is vital to ensure you are always performing efficiently and safely on site. Demolition is a dynamic industry, with regular changes in technology, legislation and regulations, NDTG CCDO Card Renewal courses ensure that your knowledge is always relevant and current. For details of renewal timeframes and what you need to do to keep your CCDO card valid, talk to the NDTG team today. It's worth noting that the Trained Operator Red Card only lasts for 3 years and is not renewable - instead, the operative must pass the relevant NVQ to upgrade to the relevant Blue Operative card. The Blue cards are renewable by attending a one day course. This validates your card for a further 5 years.
CCDO cards usually take around two weeks to arrive with you, though the delivery time is dependent on the training organisation you completed your training with. If you completed your training with NDTG, call the team on 01442 217 144 (Option 2) for an update on your CCDO Card issuing. If your training was provided by one of our Approved Training Organisations (ATOs), you will need to contact them directly for a status update on your CCDO card issuing.
It's possible to jump straight onto the most relevant CCDO card for the role that you are going to be fulfilling, but you will be required to provide a CV or a CCDO Application Evidence form. Our advisors will be happy to guide you through the process or you can use our enquiry form to get in touch.
There is no age limit on holding a CCDO card. There are a series of pre-requisites for higher level CCDO cards, which include a required number of years experience and other qualifications. NDTG are here to help you identify the right CCDO card course for your situation.
Anyone visiting a demolition site who isn't a qualified Demolition Operative needs a CCDO Site Visitor card. The course covers site safety and ensures that procedures are being followed, even if an individual has no direct demolition experience.
