Gained a fair bit of knowledge and impressed with the construction courses, very enjoyable.

Very well presented construction course, all down to Steve Aston. First class construction training, well done.

Instructor was quality, good knowledge! All in all good experience.

The assessor made the construction course easy to understand and also interesting.

UK Construction Training and Courses in Somerset, Dorset & Wiltshire

With over 20 years experience in the construction industry we know that high quality, cost effective construction training is difficult to find in the UK around Somerset, Dorset & Wiltshire. Being unable to find it we decided to supply it instead! We formed Mindset Training in Frome (2010) to deliver the construction training and construction courses we know the industry wants and deserves.

Here at Mindset Construction Training we understand the construction training needs of both individuals and companies and the cost and time constraints we all work under in our industry and we tailor our offering to suit you – in short, we care.

The entry requirements to get into the construction industry and the qualifications needed to stay in it once you have started have never been so demanding. At Mindset Training we can provide all of your basic needs. The first requirement is the CSCS Card – without this the vast majority of major construction sites will not even allow workers on site. At the base level this is the CSCS (Green) Labourer’s Card. To attain this you need to have passed a CITB Health, Safety & Environment Test within the last 2 years and already have one or more of the following:

  • NVQ in a construction related  subject
  • IOSH Health & Safety Qualification
  • Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness Qualification


  • Level 1 Award in Health and safety in a Construction Environment

If you do not have any of these then the quickest and most cost effective path to getting your CSCS (Green) Labourer’s Card is to take the 1 day Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment. This lasts for life once successfully completed (unlike the Site Safety Plus Health & Safety Awareness Qualification which has to be re-done every time you renew CSCS Card) and can be achieved in 1 day. In fact, it can be achieved in as little as 6 guided learning hours, depending on your experience.

Go to our Level 1 Award in Health and Safety in a Construction Environment page for more details.

Our flagship course at Mindset is the NRSWA Street Works Qualification. We offer the full course or re-assessment at both Operative and Supervisor level. We run open courses monthly or for 4 or more candidates we can run bespoke full courses either here in our centre or on-site.

Go to our NRSWA Street Works page for more details.
