Safety & Access have announced the commencement this week of the very first CISRS scaffolding training ever to take place in Nepal.
Nepalese scaffolders are renowned throughout the world for their hard work and commitment to learning. This week the first group of trainees attended our centre in the heart of Kathmandu to commence CISRS training and learn new skills to take to the Gulf with them and to increase efficiency and safety in their workplace.
CISRS qualifications are very important to the Nepalese people as these provide independently accredited qualifications recognised by clients throughout the Middle East and thus increase job prospects.
As you may be aware just over a year ago Nepal was devastated by an earthquake that left almost 10’000 people dead. This has had a major effect on the economy. It is envisaged that the availability of CISRS training within Nepal will assist the scaffolders there with improved job prospects abroad to ensure that their families are provided for and that on some levels lives can be enhanced.
The training precedes an intensive four week marketing campaign to promote the centre and CISRS qualifications within UAE, Qatar and Saudi where interest in the training at source in Kathmandu is increasing.
A full report on the CISRS training and benefits to the Nepalese people will follow from ScaffMag in due course.
