FIS have introduced two offers to help fit-out sector drylining operatives upgrade to the Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card, an essential replacement for the expired CRO cards which cannot be renewed. These offers are a part of the Fit-out Futures programme which aims to get a carded and qualified workforce.
The first offer is a 20% discount on the full price of upgrading their current CRO card in the drylining trade to a Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card for £995 + vat. The old CRO cards are expiring and will not be renewed which means operatives need to upgrade to a Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card in drylining. This will include registration, paperwork, onsite assessment and NVQ level 2 completion which will enable them to become qualified in drylining and invest in their future with a Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card which is valid for five years.
The second offer is a fast track route for experienced drylining Finishers to upgrade from their current CRO card to a Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card in two days for £300 + VAT. Operatives only spend one day away from site to gain their qualification and get the Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card. This an opportunity for operatives to turn their experience into a qualification so they can work on site.
