CSCS Cards for asbestos removal operatives, supervisors and managers are available from ARCA under the AMI Skills Card Scheme.
This scheme is a nationally recognised construction skills card scheme carrying the CSCS logo. By carrying the CSCS logo the cards provide a means to verify that people, who want to work on constructions sites, have the necessary training, qualifications and experience for the type of work they carry out.
All physical smartcards issued by ARCA use smart technology and contain an electronic chip. This can be used to check the identity of the card holder and, for example, when ARCA updates a card holders’ record with ‘successfully completed operative annual refresher’ this will automatically update the chip in the card.
Virtual smartcards can also be issued to applicants, at no additional cost, if the applicant provides a personal mobile number and email address on the application form.
