The IAT has recently been approved by Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) as a route to getting a relevant CSCS card which is a prerequisite for gaining access to any construction site. The card available is a Professionally Qualified Persons card and you need to be an IAT member at Technician (Tech IAT), Member (MIAT) or Fellow (FIAT) grade.
The process is simple and straightforward.
You will need to have passed the HS and E for Managers and Professionals within the last 2 years, but if you need to do this there is a link to book the test at a centre local to where you live and also to get the revision information to help you with the test.
You then just need to pay the cost of the card and the card is sent out to you in the post within a few days. Your account is then live and will be there for when the card needs to renewed. You will get reminder from CSCS in plenty of time to take the HS and E test when you your card is due for renewal.
The system works well, is easy to follow and is one of the benefits of being an IAT member.
