CSCS PQPs card - september deadline
Or without acronyms construction certification skills professionally qualified persons card (

As I discovered today EH is hoping to make possession of a heritage skills CSCS card compulsory for works on their sites from September 2010. This would be a heritage skills card for site workers or a professionally qualified persons card for surveyors, consultants and general heritage/coservation bods who aren't 100% site based. September this year is incidentally when a useful 'grandfather rights' clause closes... basically grandfather rights are where you get someone to testify that you are a competant person as you have been a competant person for donkey's years already. It would cost you ?47 to get the card via this route whereas after this date the only alternative is to pay a minimum of ?1000 to get a heritage skills NVQ - even if you already have heritage qualifications (they aren't 'on the job' so apparantly don't count). The normal white CSCS archaeologist technician (which I already possess) is apparantly not a heritage skills card. The CSCS folk/EH are also pressuring people who commission architects, buildings surveyors, conservation consultants etc to make it a compulsory requirement (i certainly had my arm twisted to include it in my briefs). It therefore sounds as if it might be good to get in here before the rush. There is a list of approved trade bodies which can testify on your behalf - apparantly the IHBC are in negotiations to become one but the IFA are not. I have just contacted the IFA to ask about this but suggest that it might be a good idea if anyone else interested were to do the same asap if any progress is to be made before september.

Apologies if there are any flaws in this post - I have the CSCS leaflet in front of me and the words from the workshop ringing in my ears but if anyone has more inside knowledge PLEASE say nicely and don't flame like usual. And please don't go off topic about how rubbish the IFA are, I'd just like to know if anyone already has this card, would be interested in getting it or already specifies it as a minimum qualification? Thanks
