CISRS partners with providers to offer subsidised CPD courses

The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) is marking the first anniversary of the introduction of CPD courses for scaffolders by running a number of subsidised courses across the UK. 

CISRS has reached an agreement with a number of training providers that will enable them to deliver the CPD programme at only £50 per head – a price reduction in excess of 80%. A total of 13 courses will be delivered between June and August, allowing for up to 156 scaffolders to take advantage of this offer. 

David Mosley, CISRS Scheme Manager, said: “I would really like to thank the training centres that have partnered with us on this initiative. Since its introduction in July 2017, the uptake for the CPD courses has exceeded all expectations and providers would have had no problem filling these courses at the usual market rate. 

“They will effectively be delivering these courses on CISRS behalf for around half the usual income.  I think it’s fantastic that we can work with them to do something so positive – and that will benefit so many operatives across the UK – to mark the CPD programme one year on.”

CISRS will also waive the usual costs of the delegate guidance notes and card application fees normally incurred in the delivery of these courses. 

Close to 2,000 scaffolders have completed the two-day CPD programme since it was launched in July 1 2017.

Gary Whitehead, Scaffold Supervisor at Lee Marley Ltd, said: “I was very impressed by the CPD course and came away with a refreshed sense of knowledge. Please keep up the good work.”

The subsidised courses will be held at the following centres:

  • AIS (North Shields)
  • Altrad/Generation (Wakefield) 
  • CITB Northern Ireland (Crumlin) 
  • LTC (Plymouth)
  • NCC East (Bircham Newton) 
  • NCC Midlands (Birmingham)
  • NCC Scotland (Inchinnan) 
  • NCC Waltham Forest (Leytonstone) 
  • NETA (Stockton)
  • QCF (Cardiff)
  • Safety and Access (Nottingham)
  • Safety and Access (Immingham) 
  • Simian Skill (Warrington)
