As you are probably aware there are major changes and improvements taking place in the Fenestration industry, with the introduction of Minimum Technical Competencies (MTCs) and Transition to Certified Installer status (TCI). It is important to be well informed and keep updated. To that end we hope our Q&A sessions on Twitter and more recently, our online Seminars are proving to be very useful to our installers.
In the New Year we will be holding two webinars looking at Transition to the revised Competent Person Scheme requirements as set out by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). This is where all window, door and roof light replacement glazing CPSs have to transfer their existing registered companies from self-certifying under the old CPS, to self-certifying under the revised CPS requirements.
We will issue details of the dates and times of these webinars shortly and how you can register for your FREE place. Each Webinar is an hour long session packed with information and there will be questions answered at the end of the presentation. Once you have registered all you will need is a computer with a speaker and of course an internet connection.
All installers must have transitioned by 30th June 2014 and the inspections have already started.
We are trying to make this transition as easy as possible and have also published our ‘Guide for Transition to Certified Installer’ which you can find in your installers’ area at http://www.fensaonline.com/
In the guide you will find a document check list that you can work through to make sure you have everything you need. It is important to have the correct documentation available to the inspectors to avoid an inspection failure.
Don’t forget, we are also hosting a series of FREE one-hour online twitter Q&A sessions to answer your questions on transitions:
