CISRS Approves New Training Centre In The North East: AIS


CISRS has just granted training provider accreditation to a prestigious industry training centre in the North East – AIS Training in North Shields, part of the Advanced Industrial Solutions group.

The state-of-the-art training village, conveniently located off the A19, in Tyne & Wear and offering 200,000 square foot of first rate training facilities, an on-site hotel and restaurant, is accredited for Part 1 Tube & Fitting Scaffolding and CISRS Operative Training Scheme (COTS) courses, with Basic Scaffold Inspection Training to follow soon.

CISRS Scheme Manager Dave Mosley said: “AIS has a very impressive set-up and rich history in training off-shore and other sectors. They have responded really well to the strict criteria and demands it takes to be a CISRS approved training provider and we are very pleased to have them on board.”

Part 1 and COTS scaffold training courses got underway at AIS in February and the centre is taking bookings for the courses now via their website at:

David John Adams, Lead Scaffold Instructor at AIS Training said: “We are delighted to have been awarded approval to deliver CISRS courses at our world-class training village in Newcastle, which will help make construction and work sites a safer place. Scaffolding is a crucial, highly sought-after skill and CISRS is widely acknowledged as the best industry standard available. We are anticipating high-demand for places.

“This is the latest course to be added to our comprehensive portfolio of 175 industry-approved qualifications for the construction, oil and gas, wind and maritime sectors. It will be delivered from our brand new multi-million pound training centre of excellence for the construction sector, which offers state-of-the-art facilities and a world-class learning experience.”
