Roofing Contractor (Operatives) will be supported in progressing from a Green CSCS card to a Red Experienced Worker then on to the Blue Skilled Worker card. This programme would also suit individuals with higher level CSCS cards who are looking to gain experience of using other products /systems and operatives wishing to become multi-skilled across from several disciplines or products.

BCP courses are structured to include knowledge and understanding of product systems, health, safety and welfare at a recognised level in the industry and will put the operatives on the path to becoming competent and qualified.
