CITB has developed this standard in discussion with industry
Minimum 2 days of 6 learning hours
The purpose of this standard is to train supervisors and engineers in the piling industry on specific Temporary Works requirements.
- understanding the design brief
- identifying risks and risk management
- legislation and guidance
Focusing on, but not limited to:
- testing beams
- piling platforms
- reinforcement cages
- associated temporary works for various disciplines within the piling industry including support fluid, silo bases, guidewalls, ground anchors, platforms and other general piling techniques for which temporary works is necessary.
Training delivered against this standard would be relevant to the following occupational groups:
- management and leadership.
There are no candidate pre-requisites required to take part in this training. However, all candidates should be experienced in piling operations and be familiar with temporary works operations from supervisor level and above.
As a minimum, course instructors must be able to demonstrate that, in relation to this standard, they have:
- A train the trainer or instructional techniques course certificate
- Successfully completed training to this standard
- At least 2 years relevant industrial experience
- A verifiable CV.
All materials and equipment will be of a suitable quality and quantity for candidates to achieve learning outcomes, and will comply with relevant legislation and industry recognised processes.
The class size and candidate/instructor ratio will allow training to be delivered in a safe manner and enable candidates to achieve the learning outcomes.
The following delivery methods may be used in the delivery of this standard:
- a blend of classroom and on-site practical, to be carried out in a controlled environment.
This standard is considered to contain 51 per cent or more theoretical learning.
For the successful completion of training, candidates must complete an end of course practical assessment or knowledge test that measures the learning outcomes and has a pass or fail criteria.
Quality assurance against this standard will require initial approval of the training organisation and their content mapped to the standard.
CITB will also conduct an approval intervention, either desk-based or centre visit, to ensure the training organisation can meet the requirements of the Training Standard.
Approved training organisations (ATOs) will be required to present information on records of training and assessment upon request to CITB for desk-based analysis. They will also be visited annually by the CITB quality assurance team.
Mandatory refresher every 3 years.
Either on request or in 3 years from approval date.
