The Roofing Industry Alliance has arranged a major three-year investment with CITB, which will support over 5000 roofing operatives to undertake formalised manufacturer training, recognising the vital contribution that manufacturers play in training the roofing industry.
The Basic Competency Programme (BCP) is based on approved manufacturer training and the objective of the programme is to support operatives without roofing qualifications.
Operatives will be assisted to progress from a Green CSCS card, to a Red CSCS Experienced Worker then on to the Blue Skilled Worker card. This programme would also suit individuals with higher level CSCS cards who are looking to gain experience of using other products /systems and operatives wishing to become multi-skilled across from several disciplines or products.
BCP courses are structured to include knowledge and understanding of product systems, health, safety and welfare at a recognised level in the industry and will put the operatives on the path to becoming competent and qualified.
BCP is endorsed by CITB and the National Federation of Roofing Contractors’ Competent Person Scheme, CompetentRoofer, as well as by CSCS.
The BCP supports training, competencies and qualifications in all roofing disciplines:
Sheeting and Cladding,
Built Up Felt Roofing:
Single Ply Roofing:
