CISRS scaffolder training across the UK has been increased through the opening of two new centres.

AIS Training which is part of the UK’s biggest energy sector training provider has recently opened new training facilities in Aberdeen and Pyle, South Wales.

The centre in Dyce, Aberdeen, will play host to a variety of CISRS courses including the one-day COTS course, Inspection courses, the mandatory CPD, Supervisor and Scaffold Awareness programme.

David John Adams, AIS Business Unit / Operations Manager, said: “This new facility will be to service the requirement of the offshore, industrial and construction sectors in the north east of Scotland and also give scaffolders and scaffolding contractors another location in the UK to undergo their training.” 

David Mosley, CISRS Managing Director, added: “I’d like to congratulate AIS Survivex on gaining CISRS accreditation for their new training centre in Dyce. Through this new facility the availability of a wide range of scaffolder training courses in Scotland has been significantly increased.”

The Aberdeen launch comes shortly after a similar opening in Pyle. This centre offers Scaffold Awareness, COTS, Inspection, Supervisors and CPD courses. 

AIS is looking to increase course availability in South Wales as well as provide additional on-site training, having recently delivered courses for KAEFER Ltd at Barry Island.
