It’s a common mistake by made by clients and contractors overseas that the UK scaffolding training scheme for Scaffolders is a CITB scheme when actually its always been owned and run by the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS).
The attached link provides more information about Mr Allen Craigen, the first ever CISRS Registered Scaffolder from 1979.
As the CISRS Scheme gathered its popularity from established and quality training in the UK over the years since the 1970’s it has also evolved into an internationally recognised and independently accredited scaffolding training standard offering skills training, inspector training and supervisor training for scaffolding professionals. Safety & access are extremely proud to be the operator of not only two CISRS Training Centres in the UK but also internationally accredited centres in UAE, Qatar, South Korea and are also investigating the opening of an additional CISRS centre in India.
If you are a client or contactor in the UK or overseas, please don’t consider poor imitations set up on the back of the CISRS original Scaffolders training scheme, insist on the authentic scheme to be assured of independently accredited quality training for your business and its supply chain!!
