Breaking News – Martin Morrell departs NDTG…

Training group parts company with operations manager.

DemolitionNews understands that Martin Morrell, the operations manager of the National Demolition Training Group (NDTG), has left the training group.

In a cryptic message posted on his LinkedIn profile page, Morrell said that he was “looking for a new challenge”. In a brief conversation, Morrell confined that he had parted company with the NDTG, citing the fact that the Hemel Hempstead base is a long way from his home in Norfolk.

Regardless of the circumstances, Morrell’s departure will be a loss. Although he was in his post for approximately one year, Morrell brought with him an enormous amount of experience, knowledge of the demolition industry’s specific training requirements, and – just as importantly – an in-depth knowledge of industry training regimes having previously worked alongside the NDTG as a training group support co-ordinator at ConstructionSkills.

The timing of his departure is equally unfortunate. The National Demolition Training Group is actively seeking to manage and administer its own industry-specific training card scheme, a process that would have benefitted from Morrell’s extensive experience.
