About the AICS

The Access Industry Competence Scheme (AICS) provides skills cards for the access and scaffolding industry.
The scheme was launched in 2018 and will be issued across a range of scaffolding and access occupations.
AICS cards provide evidence that individuals working within the industry have received the required training and achieved the required qualifications for the type of work they undertake.
One of the Scheme’s key focus points is to ensure that Continuing Professional Development can be achieved through a flexible route whilst maintaining the highest level of industry competence.
We will continue to work with industry to ensure that the Scheme further contributes to establishing a competent, safe and efficient access and scaffolding industry.

The AICS Management Committee will continually review and update the Scheme in light of on-going industry feedback, changes in standards, legislation or industry best practice and advancing technology.
The card scheme is supported by the Access Industry Training Scheme (AITS), who deliver a full range of practical and theoretical training courses and assessments for the scaffolding and access industry.
It is not in the interests of the card scheme to create a monopoly training provider, and a range of alternative recognised training routes will be accepted within the scheme.
AICS follows the principles and requirements of BS
EN 17024 – General Requirements for Bodies Operating Certification of Persons.
