    Default Advanced Scaffolders System Training

    Well my question is should an CISRS advanced scaffolder have to go on more training course to erected system scaffolds.

    What is your view.

    In my opinion no,you had to erect a cuplock support scaffold in the advanced course on the assessed route course,system is very straight forward,perhaps it may be neccesary to do a 1 or 2 day refresher,if regulations regarding the erection of systems changes dramatically,but its a doddle to use it,shouldnt be held anywhere as complex as tube and fitt...

    Your proposal is correct.

    2 day course at Newcastle college for CISRS scaffolders to get system on their card, however, £££££££££££££

    Horses for Courses, Guys we are more qualified than most.

    If the oppurtunity arises for a free course, go for it....Irespective of your beliefs, Knowledge=Power, However, a little Knowledge, in the wrong hands = Anger, which a addition of a D=Danger.

    I realise courses are not everyones proverbial 'Cup of tea'. However, the job you's are currently undertaking, shows the Knowledge, of you's being a competent scaffolder, you have the card to prove it, and the knowledge to do it.

    We are more compliant than any other trade, regarding, H&S, WAHR 2005.

    IMHO, let the Scaffolders, 'Scaffold' And the PC clients, watch in AWE.

    Rant over.

    In each of the 3 current courses on route to Advanced (T&F) there is a system module.

    Part 1: Erect and dismantle independent system scaffold

    Part 2: Product Familiarization in system scaffold

    Advanced: Erect and dismantle staircase T&F and System

    IMO the need for additional system training for Advanced and Part 2 devalues the CITB scaffolders training program as it stands. .

    Lets be honest its all about the $$$$$$$$$
