CISRS is marking the second anniversary of the introduction of its controversial 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 for just £50 (or even less in some cases) for around 250 delegates across the UK this summer and autumn.
CISRS also say they will waive the usual costs of the delegate training folders and card application fees normally incurred in the delivery of these courses.
The mandatory 2- day CPD programme for CISRS card renewals was introduced in July 2017. Despite some initial resistance, CISRS continues to say the course has proved to be very successful according to course feedback.
In just under two years figures suggest that 6000 operatives have now completed the refresher course.
CISRS said: “As a not for profit organisation, CISRS continues to look for positive initiatives such as this to redirect some of its income. They will be injecting over £65,000 mainly raised via CISRS Overseas Training back into the UK sector”.
Dave Mosley CISRS MD said “We would like to thank all of the providers who are taking part in this promotion, we really appreciate their support it allows us to give something back to the industry. We hope to offer more in the way of subsidised training, potentially targeting the new entrant sector later in the year”.
