Course Materials: CABWI

Confined space entry, supervision and rescue training in the UK must be delivered to very exacting standards to ensure workers remain safe, and CABWI, the awarding body for the water and utilities industries, operates an accreditation scheme for training providers that is accepted across the country. UVSAR has created a complete course delivery package for the CABWI scheme, with classroom slides, instructor notes and student handbooks for all the standard regulated qualifications.

Providers can buy individual pack licenses for each risk level if they are only delivering part of the CABWI scheme, or the complete set at GBP 1350.00 ex VAT. This is a one-off payment for the electronic files only; printed handbooks are ordered separately.

Materials are supplied in a clean OEM format with no brand bias, as shown in the images on this webpage. We use fully-licensed imagery throughout, with no third-party logos or product names visible. The PUB slides will be branded with your corporate logos, and a personalized inner first page can be bound into the printed handbooks for a small additional fee, to promote your company.

CABWI courses are in English for workers subject to UK domestic legislation. The scheme is not available outside of the UK.

To deliver this training, the provider must be audited by CABWI. This includes assessment of facilities, equipment, instructor competencies and quality management systems. While our course packages have passed CABWI audits and have been recognized as the best quality student materials they have seen, we cannot and do not guarantee that a particular training provider will be accredited, nor can we intervene in the auditing process. These course materials are only sold to training providers who have been accredited, or are in the process of applying for accreditation. Similar materials without CABWI branding are available for providers who wish to offer courses in these subject areas without accreditation - please contact us for more information.

What do I get?

  • A Course Delivery Pack containing logo-branded classroom slides in FXL EPUB, plus PDF instructor notes for each qualification.
  • A perpetual non-transferable license to use the materials within the pack as-supplied for delivery of the named syllabus, to unlimited students. You can make as many copies of the pack as required for your instructing staff, but cannot give copies of slide decks or instructor notes to delegates or the general public, resell/syndicate the materials or publish them online.
  • Access to order the full-colour printed student handbook from our UK print facility.
  • Free updates for five years to account for changes in legislation or standards (extended service plans available after this period).

FXL EPUB? Whatnow?

Consistent design and content is vital for training course delivery. Auditors and insurers need to know that a delegate was shown exactly the same information as everyone else, so slide decks that can be freely edited by instructors, deleting things they don't like or adding images stolen from the Web, are simply not acceptable in a professional environment. There are only a few ways to distribute rich-content slide decks so they always look the same, on Windows, Mac or mobile, without having to manually install fonts or change screen sizes, and the most reliable and modern format is Fixed Layout (FXL) EPUB.

I want PowerPoints!

Sorry but no. Our slide decks use technology that is not supported in PowerPoint or Apple Pages. We do not provide the editable masters for our OEM course handbooks or slide decks for obvious reasons; each document represents hundreds of hours of expert work and the content is only licensed for use as a finished document. Using EPUB instead of PPT means we can reduce prices, include graphics that cannot be licensed in editable formats, and take away the worries about how to keep everything updated and error-free.

Printed handbooks

The Course Delivery Packs are supported by an 8.5x11" full-colour perfect-bound student handbook, which covers all topics in low/medium/high/rescue. Handbooks are produced on demand so you always get the latest version. Standard service has a typical five working day lead time with next working day UK delivery; minimum order quantity is 20 books. As CABWI is a UK-specific program we do not ship these titles to other countries.

CABWI-accredited training providers can buy handbooks without ordering our Course Delivery Packs, but the two are designed to work together.
