About the event

What is a Management System?

A management system is the way in which an organization manages the interrelated parts of its business in order to achieve its objectives. These objectives can relate to a number of different topics, including product or service quality, operational efficiency, environmental performance, health and safety in the workplace and many more.


The NADC have worked with DRBi Ltd to produce a one-day course aimed at helping plumbing and drainage businesses demonstrate professionalism and work to recognised quality systems and processes used in the industry. The course is aimed at business owners and their managers/supervisors looking to grow and implement some standard operating practices and improve their knowledge in key areas of management and business administration.

The course is designed to support the DrainSafe accreditation and has sections specifically focused on areas of management structure in addition to the technical training courses that are available through the National Drainage Academy.

The aims and objectives of this course are to give the delegates more confidence in managing, administering and growing their business by understanding and learning about key areas of running a plumbing and/or drainage business. Focussing on 6 core areas that will benefit the business, the course leader is a company that has over 20 years’ experience of managing and operating successfully in the industry. The course also provides good grounding and preparation for businesses that are looking to start the ISO9001 application process.
