Pilgrims Provides Checklist for CONDO Training Changes

helping to ease the growing burden facing contractors in staying compliant

Risk management and security training expert Pilgrims Group is helping to ease the growing burden facing contractors in staying compliant with regulation whilst operating alongside the MOD.
Specialist training is required for UK contractors and other civilian personnel who wish to supply commercial services overseas within the Ministry of Defence’s Joint Operations Area or theatre of operation in support of UK Armed Forces.
CONDO (Contractors On Deployed Operations) training can only be provided by civilian training companies that are approved and accredited by the ADS – the trade body advancing UK AeroSpace, Defence and Security industries. This training requires that personnel are adequately prepared for operational deployments and is dependent on a number of factors including the nature and location of the operation, the duration of task and the threat.
Earlier this year the MOD published an updated issue of its Defence Standard 05-129 document containing a number of significant changes that affect any contractor, employee, subcontractor’s employee or where applicable, locally recruited worker, working as part of the MOD’s operational theatre (Joint Operational Area).
To help those companies affected check that they’re compliant with the new regulations, Pilgrims has posted an easy overview of these changes and what they mean. Visit: http://www.pilgrimsgroup.com/news.php?id=100 to read the checklist, and call the team on 01483 228 778 if you’re in any doubt as to your compliance.
Pilgrims has been delivering high quality CONDO training since 2003 and is an approved member of ADS. The company’s specialist CONDO courses cover 10 core subject areas. Working in tandem with global operations to understand current and emerging security trends, Pilgrims tailors its courses to reflect its clients’ operations. This ensures that training is relevant to where the client is deployed. “We adopt a progressive style to training that achieves impressive results; re-enforcing modules by constantly questioning delegates and role playing scenarios ensuring key criteria is absorbed,” explains PGL Training Manager, Sam Mostyn.
