Below are details of the changes we will be undergoing from 1st May 2017.
WHY HAVE WE DONE THIS?
- Engineers can go on site
- No additional courses need to be taken to gain CSCS card
ADIA HEALTH AND SAFETY TEST
The ADIA has created an online ADIA Health and Safety course that engineers will need to complete before sitting the BS EN16005 course.
If an engineer has done their BS EN16005 and would like the new card, they must have completed this H&S test before a new card can be issued.
This card will allow learners to go on-site supervised by a qualified technician. This card will be valid for 1 year and is not renewable.
Trainees will need to do the health and safety test before the card is issued and complete the BS EN16005 within the 12 months’ period.
Once the ADIA Health and Safety test is completed, the engineer is then able to sit the BS EN16005 course and exam.
When they pass they will receive a card with the CSCS hologram as well as City & Guilds logo.
The accreditation lasts four years. After this, engineers will have to reapply to do a renewal exam and Health and Safety test.
Engineers will have to complete this form if they have:
- a card that has expired,
- lost their card or
- Would like the new CSCS card (health and safety test must be taken before issue).
Cards are renewable annually.
