Scaffolding Training and Scaffold Inspection

Scaffolding training and assessment courses are for those working with scaffolding, including scaffolders, inspectors, scaffolding supervisors and managers. Scaffold courses are designed to ensure all candidates understand the legislation surrounding their role as well as all relevant health and safety. We offer a wide portfolio of scaffolding courses including scaffold awareness and scaffold inspection training courses without specific accreditation and courses accredited under the CISRS (Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme).

CISRS Course - Scaffolding Training Available

Scaffolding training courses include a number of CISRS Card (Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme) approved courses, including:

  • CISRS 1 Day (COTS) – The CISRS Operative Training Scheme (COTS) course is a one-day course and is a requirement for anyone wishing to apply for their first CISRS Scaffolding Trainee card or Scaffolding labourer card for those who carry out onsite labouring or driving duties in support of scaffolding operations. It is also a requirement for CISRS Scaffolding labourer card renewals. It teaches the basics of the industry and how to keep safe when working with scaffolding and access systems, whilst also making sure existing operatives are up to date. To qualify for this course delegates must have successfully completed a CITB Health and Safety and Environment touch-screen test within 2 years prior to attending the CISRS COTS course, or demonstrate that they have successfully completed a course that gives a recognised exemption. CISRS Cards for Scaffolding Labourer are valid for 5 years.
