The ARCA, ACAD Skills Card Scheme are nationally recognised construction skills cards carrying the CSCS logo. Whilst at their place of work, individuals will be visited by their assessor, who will guide them through each part of the process. The assessor will also observe them working and provide the highest levels of support until they complete their qualification. Ideal for individuals and employers needing to avoid downtime and days away from site.
If you are unsure what NVQ’s are suitable or what cards are available, please contact Workforce Skills Support for further information and advice.
ACAD undertakes planned and unannounced audits of our members sites. This mixed approach is necessary due, in part, to the high security/high risk environments ACAD members have a long history of working within. All audits are quality checked before issue and draw upon the knowledge and skills of some of the most experienced and knowledgeable individuals within the Licensed Asbestos industry.
In addition to identifying any weaknesses and offering ideas for improvements, ACAD audits also recognise those areas where a contractor is going beyond compliance and operating at an aspirational level which are a great resource for HSE during the new style electronic licence renewals.
To recognise the efforts of ACAD members who demonstrate the very best standards, ACAD awards a Certificate of Excellence. The Excellence in Audit award goes to the organisations which have achieved the highest overall score during our site audits.
The Leading Best Practice award goes to the organisation which is exceeding the legal requirements and displaying the most aspirational standards in their work. ACAD members wishing to utilise our template can download this free of charge from the members area of our website.
