First overseas scaffolding CPD courses get underway

Safety & Access deliver first overseas scaffolding CPD

Safety & Access in conjunction with their partners Special Technical Services (STS) in Oman has successfully delivered the first ever overseas scaffolding CPD courses.

The CISRS Overseas Scheme (OSTS) has developed the two-day course to mirror the UK requirements and the first courses were delivered this week by Safety & Access Senior Instructor Rob Nicholls.

The CPD courses were delivered at the CISRS accredited scaffolding training centre in Nizwa, Sultanate of Oman.

Safety & Access say along with the training Rob was providing shadowing and observation to two of the locally qualified instructors to enable them to also deliver the overseas scaffolding CPD.

“The take up of CISRS international training is on the increase despite the recent challenges in oil and gas,” says Rick Statham, Joint Managing Director of Safety & Access. “The progression into the CPD is a clear indicator of the commitment of our customers to continue with this.

We have seen a steady increase in all of our overseas partnerships and we are confident this will continue.”

Dave Mosley CISRS Scheme Manager added: “It’s great to see CISRS continuing to push forward with OSTS. We aim to keep international standards as close to the UK Scheme as possible.”
