well ive just done my Pttls and my A1, done my shadowing with Kevin Morris @ UTN and guess what ,,they have now changed the criteria so you have to take 12 part 1's before you can shadow a part 2 then take 12 part 2's before you can shadow a advanced ....And the best bit ...Who the F*** does back to back part1's for 6mths solid....??????AT this moment in time im wondering if the 4 grand it has cost me was worth it.......that is including loss of earnings... Only 1 man knows and that is Dave Mosley at NASC ....can ya get hold of him ? does he reply to any emails???? dus he F***.....all ya get dave is in a meeting today....What exactly are NASC playing at????? Then to top it off INSTUCTORS CARDS AR BEING REMOVED so no instuctors will av proof of who they are...ITS A JOKE ( NASC AND CISRS GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER.)

Yet another example of the powers that be in our industry being far removed from what is actually happening out there!!

To carry out what is required in your situation you would have to jump from different training establishments every 2 weeks and on a national basis shadowing instructors to stand a chance....pure craziness!!

So the reality is you have spend 72wks teaching and 6wks shadowing to achieve instructor status. This will benefit the CITB and training providers as most of the courses will be delivered by "trainee instructors" on a salary significantly lower than a "Qualified Instructor".

It will also tie trainees into training centers for around 2yrs before they can train abroad or on a freelance basis. It makes sense from NASC/CITB point of view but IMO it will prove a step to far for many experienced scaffs wanting to give something back and follow an Instructor career path

Sounds like its a bid to deter anybody wanting to become an assessor,closing ranks i think,very few people can afford such time off,to pursue this career.

im still waiting for a reply to the 1st email i sent to dave 4 weeks ago. ive phoned Nasc on various occations and the lovely ladies have promised to try to help clarifly this situation up . The lady I spoke to yesterday said dave is now on holiday for 2 weeks . so she is taking this to the president of nasc ( whoever he is ) bet he's got a bentley and 200k year. To hopefully shed some light on this matter.

Then after they have removed instuctors cards all instuctors will be kept on a database except only Dave Mosely can have access to this..( whats all this about) so it looks like ( im waiting for this ) could all instuctor please pay £££££'ssss to have your details put on the database. Then if you are an accredited centre please pay nasc £££££'ss for access to this database....

THE WHOLE THING IS A F***ING RIP OFF.... I bet nasc wont re-inburse me for the money that ive shelled out and the loss of earnings ive incurred ....

Just enjoy the posh hotels everynight and spending ££££'ssss on the expenses wont ya......

I believe the instuctors card wont be renewed after expiry... even if you are and instuctor at the moment you have to pay £23.50 to get your instuctors card renewed then you still have to re-new your advanced card and still sit a touch screen test and then shell out for a first aid ticket....The whole thing is a rip off.
