New CISRS Provision in the North West

Richmond Bright offers training from their centre in Birkenhead

CISRS has carried out a successful accreditation audit with a new training provider, Richmond Bright at their facility in Birkenhead.

The centre is situated in the North West alongside the Mersey River with the spectacular Liverpool waterfront opposite.

The training facilities are modern, welcoming and convey a friendly and professional environment, in which to deliver CISRS courses. The centre has gained accreditation to deliver CISRS COTS, Basic Scaffold Inspection, Supervisor and Scaffold Awareness.

Level 2 & Level 3 NVQ in Accessing Operations and Rigging is also offered by the centre.

During the visit, CISRS Auditor Trevor Donoghue observed a group of scaffolding operatives take the first step in their scaffolding careers by attending the CISRS COTS course delivered by, Director and Scaffold Instructor, Steve Odger.

Steve, who has been in the scaffolding industry for 40 years, said: “Adding scaffolding training to Richmond Bright’s suite of courses and becoming an accredited CISRS Scaffolding training centre has been a goal of ours from the first discussions on what Richmond Bright could offer the construction sector, and in particular the scaffolding and access industry.

“This is the first step in our plans for CISRS Scaffolding training and we look forward to progressing those plans in the future and working with CISRS to provide a quality, reliable, responsive training experience for the access sector.”

Trevor Donoghue added: “Steve has gained a lot of experience of the CISRS programmes over the years as an instructor, a member of ASITO and in particular his role on the CISRS Standardisation Working Party. We wish him and Richmond Bright every success with this new venture.”
