CISRS has recently released an updated 5-Day Management & Supervisor course and also a new 2-Day Refresher course.
As well as Construction Design Management Regulations, H & S Legislation, Toolbox Talk delivery, Contract Commercial Essentials, Rams and Employment Law, the new course also now includes Temporary Works Supervision which CISRS felt would be a useful addition for Supervisors in the Scaffolding Industry.
The scaffolding bespoke course is comparable to CITB SMSTS and is recognised by Build UK.
Successful completion results in a 5-year CISRS Management & Supervisor Card.
The 5-Day Management & Supervisor course is aimed at personnel providing first-line management/supervision for scaffolding contractors (i.e., Contract Managers, Supervisors, and non-working Charge-Hands.)
The 2-Day Refresher Course is currently open to CISRS Management & Supervisor cardholders looking to renew.
It is also available to qualified Scaffolder/Advanced cardholders who are looking to move into first-line management provided they hold a current SMSTS certificate.
CISRS compliance manager Tony Barry delivered two standardisation webinars to CISRS Instructors to update them with the revised course topics and contents.
A scheme spokesperson said that the webinars were well attended and outlined the requirements for consistency for both the teaching and course standardisation required to cover the vast wealth of topics over the 5-day course.
CISRS Management & Supervisor delegates will be provided with a course folder, including CISRS modules and NASC Guidance Notes which will help prepare them for the course end project, it said.
