Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) are in the process of revising the Scaffold Inspection Training Scheme (SITS) as a result of the publication of the NASC’s TG20:13 Technical Guidance for tube and fitting scaffolding.
Following the introduction of the new documents the decision has been made by CISRS to add an extra day to the Basic Scaffold Inspection Training course, making it three days in duration. This is to accommodate the extra detail and structures included within the new TG20:13 guide.
Those who have already pre-booked a CISRS two-day course prior to 30th June 2014 cut-off date will still be allowed to attend the course and will be eligible to apply for a CISRS Basic Inspection card.
This is not expected to have an effect on the existing two days CISRS Advanced Scaffold Inspection Course.
