About Us

Training For Construction

Training for Construction (TFC) offers scaffolding-specific courses to employers and individuals who wish to gain the essential qualifications for working in the scaffolding industry. Conveniently based in North London, our training centre is fitted with all the equipment and facilities necessary to create a realistic training environment.

All courses offered at TFC are approved by the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS). CISRS qualifications are the industry-recognised qualifications for those working within the scaffolding and access sector. Our courses lead to NVQ qualifications and we support participants through all the NVQ requirements for achieving each level of competence. NVQ certificates are awarded through work-based evidence and assessments and CISRS cards are awarded having completed the relevant CISRS training and NVQ assessments.

At TFC, we offer the full range of practical and theoretical training courses and assessments for Scaffolding Labourers, Scaffolders, Advanced Scaffolders, Supervisors/Managers and Scaffolding Inspectors. Our CISRS accredited instructors have many years of practical experience and training expertise within the scaffolding sector.

Why train with us?

State of the Art Facilities

CISRS scaffolding advanced

Our extensive training facilities and equipment represent a realistic and current working environment.  This ensures that participants are familiar with the conditions of a working scaffolding environment and are trained in the use of modern and up to date scaffolding practices and protocols.

Conveniently located in London

Training for Construction is one of only a few CISRS accredited training centres in the UK located within the M25 and one of even fewer that are conveniently located in London. The official CISRS website alerts potential trainees to the fact that places on CISRS courses around the country are limited and often booked well in advance.

Our location ensures that London based candidates wishing to participate in CISRS courses do not have to travel long distances to gain their certification in scaffolding related skills. And those that travel to London to take one of our courses can avail of all the amenities the capital has to offer whilst visiting and studying. This includes convenient and comfortable hotel accommodation very close to the centre itself, along with nearby links to transport hubs that enable travel from anywhere in the country.
