The 1 day CISRS Skills Assessment is designed to assess that the candidate can demonstrate the skills learnt during the CISRS Scaffolding Part 1 and 2 courses, i.e. safely erect, alter and dismantle scaffolding in line with the objectives approved by CISRS.
The assessor will require you to erect and dismantle the following structure:
- Beamed Truss-Out Scaffold
Please note that we will invite either 3 or 6 candidates to attend the 1 day CISRS Skills Assessment at a time, as it is a requirement of CISRS that candidates carry out their assessment in gangs of 3.
By the end of the course successful delegates will have demonstrated their competency in the safe erection, alteration and dismantling of basic scaffold structures covered in the CISRS scaffolding part 1 and 2 courses.
Course Entry Requirements
Candidates must have successfully completed a CISRS Scaffolding Part 1 and 2 course and NVQ Qualification and be able to provide evidence of this in the form of certificates (unless they were completed at LTC Training Services in which case we will have a copy on file). Candidates must have the minimum 6 months further scaffold experience before attending their CISRS 1 day skills test.
Literacy and language comprehension are important requirements on all courses. Any physical impairment or literacy issues should be discussed with LTC Training Services prior to making a booking so we can best accommodate your needs.
- Erection and dismantle of 2 of the aforementioned scaffold structures for assessment purposes
Who will benefit
The law requires that any individual wishing to erect, alter or dismantle scaffolding must be able to prove their competency. The industry-wide accepted proof of competency for operatives is to hold a CISRS scaffolder card. To be eligible to apply for this card, candidates must successfully complete the following elements of training;
1.CISRS Scaffolding Part 1
2.CISRS Scaffolding Part 2
3.Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Accessing Operations and Rigging (Construction) Scaffolding
4.CISRS 1 Day Skills Assessment
Certification for all of the above courses will need to be attached to your CISRS Scaffolder card application form for it to be issued. See the relevant course descriptions and our training route flowchart for further information.
The 1 day CISRS Skills Assessment (Scaffolder) is for candidates who have already successfully completed their CISRS Part 1 and 2 courses and gained the minimum 6 months scaffold experience since completion of their Part 2 and completion of the NVQ Level 2.
It takes the form of a 1 day practical assessment in which candidates will be required to erect a Beamed Truss-out Scaffold in accordance with current best practice and allows our assessor to confirm that the candidate is competent.
