Fencing & Construction Training Ltd (FaCT) has secured new funding to support people to gain the blue FISS CSCS card for skilled installers.
The programme includes the Level 2 Diploma in Fencing and a package of additional training including the HS training and testing needed for the blue FISS CSCS card, plus CAT & Genny; abrasive wheels; manual handling; and safe use of power tools.
The training and the Level 2 qualification would normally cost you over £2,000, but with the funding package including your card application it is just £800 (plus VAT).
Plus, you don’t need to travel! The Level 2 Diploma is assessed onsite, while you work, and the training is delivered online via the Zoom portal so you can either be at home or your office.
To check if you are eligible you need to: be employed; be a UK or EU citizen; be aged 24 or over and you must live in England (mayoral controlled cities are not included e.g. London, Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, parts of the North East, Yorkshire and Peterborough); you must be employed by an England based business and be mainly working in England (the programme can also fund the self-employed, subject to approval). Tim Drew, FaCT’s MD said
“We’ve already delivered similar programmes to several hundred people in England over the last three years and we are so pleased to be able to continue to offer this support to gain the blue card. With grandfather rights ending the timing couldn’t be better for those who want to get ahead of the game and get their qualification in place before the 2024 deadline. We’re urging people to get in contact with us as funding is limited and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.”
