Scaffolding training in Huntingdon

1 Jul 14 Cambridgeshire’s West Anglia Training Association (WATA) has become the latest training provider to gain Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) accreditation.

Following completion of its CISRS accreditation audit, WATA can now offer courses in CISRS Part 1 Scaffolding, CISRS Operative Training Scheme (COTS) and Basic Scaffold Inspection Training Scheme (SITS). It is also looking to add system product courses.

A new practical training area has been erected at its premises in Huntingdon.

CISRS scheme manager Dave Mosley said: “WATA’s commitment to the CISRS scheme is reflected in the investment and drive they put into producing this high quality facility. Only six months ago on my first visit to the proposed site it was just a field with a few rabbits running around, in the very short time since that visit they now have an excellent centre in which to deliver CISRS training.”

The other facilities within the campus are of equally high quality, the classrooms, on site canteen and welfare provision will all make for a very conducive atmosphere for learning.

WATA will also offer Scaffolding Apprenticeships, which will be welcomed by the industry as there has been very high demand for apprentice places of late.
