Scaffold training scheme launches new online safety tests

Share

Scaffold training scheme CISRS with the help of NOCN will launch a new online alternative Health, Safety and Environment test for scaffolding operatives next month.

In line with other recognised exemptions the online test covers the essential aspects of Health Safety and Environmental practices required for operatives applying for a CISRS card.

The test provides high quality, neurodiverse eLearning content with an accompanying voice over which the operative can work through online prior to taking the test. This means they do not need to purchase any separate revision material.

The combined cost of the eLearning modules and the test is £22.

NASC President David Brown (IBN Scaffold Access Ltd) said: “I think this is a real win for the scaffolding sector. The operatives can now achieve an industry recognised H&S test on their own terms. The flexibility it offers by being on line means people can learn at their own pace, whenever and wherever is convenient, it obviously removes the need to travel to a test centre.  This is a very positive move, the sooner it goes live the better”

Dave Mosley CISRS Managing Director added: “NOCN administers the CISRS card scheme on our behalf so we have a very close working relationship with them. They previously introduced a very similar H&S test for the Plant sector which has proven to be very popular and we are confident that this can be equally successful for our sector and is something we look forward to exploring further in future.”

In the coming weeks CISRS and NOCN will be delivering webinars and meeting with CISRS approved Training Providers and the wider scaffolding industry.

The Test is due to go live from Monday 18th June 2024,  further information on how to book a test will be available soon from both the CISRS and NOCN websites.
