Since the 1st September 2015 Candidates must hold a valid CISRS Trainee Scaffolder or CISRS Scaffold Labourer card for a minimum of 6 months before attending Part 1. We will require a copy of their CISRS Card (or registration number) for verification purposes prior to the candidate booking their course.

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 course
2. CISRS Scaffolding Part 2 course
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 CISRS Scaffolding part 1 course is suitable for adult trainees who want to work towards achieving a CISRS scaffolder card and level 2 NVQ diploma in accessing operations and rigging (construction) scaffolding. Following completion of the part 1 course operatives will have been trained to erect and dismantle basic scaffolds as listed below. Operatives can apply for a CISRS trainee scaffolder card once they have passed a construction skills health, safety and environmental test. Following completion of the course operatives will need to gain a minimum of 6 months scaffolding experience before attending the CISRS scaffolding part 2 course also held at LTC Training Services. 

Candidates must also attend and successfully complete the CISRS 1 Days Skills Assessment and level 2 NVQ Diploma in Accessing Operations and Rigging (Construction) Scaffolding as certificates for all of these elements of training will be required when applying for a CISRS scaffolder card – all of which can be completed at LTC Training Services.
