Past graduates of The Survey Association’s (TSA) Surveying Course can now obtain a Gold Card from The Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS).
Following an application by TSA, CSCS, the UK’s leading skills certification scheme within the construction industry, has agreed the waiver for the 381 Survey School graduates who started the Course before April 2018.
Director of Operations at CSCS, Gordon Jenkins said, “CSCS is pleased to be able to work alongside TSA to reach an agreement that benefits the Construction industry and aligns with the objectives of the Construction Leadership Council.”
“Working with the standard setting body we have concluded that the TSA Surveying Courses in Surveying, which started before the Level 3 Diploma, meet the required standards for this occupation.”
Students who started the TSA Surveying Course after April 2018 will not be able to use it to get a CSCS card. They must instead complete the Level 3 Diploma in Engineering Surveying.
TSA Council Member and Survey School Governor, Nathan Spencer said, “This recognition by CSCS, is testament, both to the quality of our graduates and the survey training provided on the TSA Course.”
“The Course has been the foundation for the Level 3 Diploma and Level 3 Apprenticeship, ensuring the next generation have the skills required to support the construction industry. It is very positive news for the surveying industry that CSCS recognises TSA’s contribution.”
