CISRS offers third-round of subsidised CPD courses

SIMIAN, a renowned name in the scaffolding and broader construction industry, has once again demonstrated its unwavering commitment to excellence by achieving a 'Good' grading from Ofsted for its apprenticeship programs. 

The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) is funding a third round of subsidised CPD courses.

The new funding will enable approved training centres to deliver the CPD course for only £50 per delegate.

CISRS has now fulfilled the funding pledge it made earlier in the year. In total, the training scheme has provided in excess of £150,000 in subsidised CPD training in 2021.

In a news statement CISRS said that ‘Covid-19 has caused disruption and additional expense to scaffolders, employers and training centres alike, these subsidised courses are a gesture from CISRS to those who have worked hard to keep the industry going in the last year or so.

The scaffolders training scheme is a not-for-profit organisation and wherever possible aims to give something back to its stakeholders, the Scaffolders, they said.

Previously CISRS worked with training providers In March and June offering similar subsidised CPD courses.

“We have reinvested over £150k back to our cardholders, there are very few training schemes that could say the same.”

CISRS Managing Director David Mosely said: “Over 500 individuals will have benefitted from these three programmes, we have reinvested over £150k back to our cardholders, there are very few training schemes that could say the same.”

Neil Gray Managing Director of LTC Training Services added: “LTC Training Services are delighted to be able to facilitate additional CISRS subsidised CPD courses in our Plymouth & Cullompton training centres and wish to thank CISRS for the opportunity.”
