    Good luck with that Dennis but I foresee a long fight ahead with that one. Maybe try sending Ragscaff a PM who might be able to bring you up to speed on what efforts they are putting in.

    It's been a few years and I've been plugging away but to no avail.

    NASC, and CISRS are adamant that they will recognise no other scaffolder training other than their own and insist on anyone entering the system must start all over again at the bottom.

    What this confirms is that a NASC training and a CISRS card are NOT legal requirements to erect and dismantle scaffolding in GB!
    Instead, the requirement reverts to a "competent person" as decided by the "employer" as part of their legal duties and responsibilities.

    Where a specific qualification is a legal requirement, as in Ireland under the Construction Regulations 2013, Schedule 5, that qualification MUST be recognised by any other member state under the RPL Directive (see my previous post).
    The fact that NASC refuse to consider any kind of recognition of prior learning means that their courses, whilst very good, are not a legal requirement.

    It's legalised racketeering, is what it is.
