TICA SKILL CARD

Construction Leadership Council (CLC) agreed that from January 2015 the industry, including trade associations, contractors, clients and government should specify and promote card schemes carrying the CSCS logo with no equivalents accepted.

The TICA Skill Card, approved by CSCS and is now open for applications.

Employer members and operatives will be able to apply for the relevant Skill Card on-line through the TICA web-site, by completing the application forms and submitting accepted documentation showing proof of the qualifications required for the requested card. It’s anticipated that a web-based payment method will also be in place by this time.

CSCS scheme for thermal insulation applications will close on 19th June 2017.

More information on the TICA Skill Card scheme will be available to TICA members and the wider thermal insulation sector in the coming weeks.

For further information please contact our helpline on 03333 237751.

TICA Competency Assessments
When applying for a TICA Skill Card one of the requirements is the provision of an S/NVQ Thermal Insulation qualification certificate. If these qualifications have NOT been awarded by TICA a further assessment is required to assure the competency of the applicant.

The 1 day Competency Assessments are held in Darlington at the National Training Centre and can be arranged by calling 03333 237751.

The cost of the test is £420 inc vat.

In the event of a failure a full training needs analysis is carried out and a bespoke upskilling programme developed. In the majority of cases only 1 day attendance at the National Training Centre will be necessary as upskilling can be provided on site.
