The Basic Roofing Competency Programme (BCP) endorsed by CITB and CSCS

The Basic Competency Programme (BCP) is based on BCP approved manufacturer training courses derived from the Minimum Technical Competency (MTCs) and mapped to the National Occupational Standard (NOS) and the Vocation Qualification (VQ).

The main objective of the programme is to support the operatives who have neither a full competency nor an official roofing qualification to obtain one and also help them to convert their green CSCS card to the Blue Skilled Worker CSCS card. However, it is envisaged that this programme could also suit Individuals with higher level CSCS cards, or, Individuals looking to gain experience of using other products/systems or to up-skill across from one roofing discipline to another.

The BCP is endorsed by CITB and NFRC Competent Roofer Scheme, CompetentRoofer and CSCS. Operatives attending the BCP course and successfully completing the end test are able to apply for a 3 years Red Experienced Worker CSCS card following successful completion of their CSCS health and safety test which will put the operatives on the path to becoming competent and qualified.
It is the aim to give the individual a certificate of competency in the knowledge and understanding of product systems, health, safety and welfare at a recognised level in the industry.
