The project will upskill operatives with grandfather rights to ensure all those with CSCS cards also achieve associated NVQs by 2020.
It will do this by developing an introductory course and Specialist Upskilling Programme (SUP) and these courses will then be rolled out to the sector.
- Develop ‘introduction to lightning conducting’ 3-day course and Lightning Protection Engineer SUP
- Deliver to those from industry with expiring grandfather rights.
