The Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) has been the industry recognised scaffold training scheme for over 40 years. It is the preferred and only scaffolding qualification of all the major organisations including CSCS, NASC, HSE, Build UK, UNITE, UCATT and the largest scaffold systems manufacturers.

Scaffolders being registered with CISRS, the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme, which recognises both the competence of the scaffolder to carry out a range of scaffolding operations to the standards required by the industry and also that they have followed an approved route of training and experience before being assessed to National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) standards.

Scaffolders completing the approved training courses run by the CITB, a robust training programme that ensures scaffolders have the opportunity to learn the scaffolding trade whilst in full-time employment – splitting their time between CITB courses and on-site supervised training.
