Curtain walling CSCS Card launched

The one-day ‘Curtain Walling Essential Knowledge Course’ from the Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB) is now live.

Accredited by the GQA, the course is an introduction to curtain walling, and is intended as a revision for experienced curtain wall installers and for individuals who have little, or no knowledge of the fundamentals of this type of glazed construction.

The introductory course forms part of a mandatory module leading to the award of a newly created CAB Curtain Walling Installers CSCS Card but it can also be used by CAB members as a training tool to teach the fundamentals of curtain wall systems to staff and new employees.

Since 2017, glass, glazing or fenestration CSCS cards are only available via GQA Qualifications. CAB partnered with GQA and CSCS to develop a route to obtain the newly created CAB Curtain Walling Installers CSCS Card.

Applications to attend the introductory course for the CSCS qualification will be managed by CAB, and candidates can apply by completing the enrolment form which can be found on the CAB website. CAB will then liaise with candidates to book a convenient course date and the training will be carried out by a GQA approved training provider.

The cost to attend the one-day course is £249 + VAT but CAB members will qualify for a discounted rate of £199 + VAT. Training centres will offer guidance to delegates to apply for a trainee card, temporary card or renewal card.
