Industry Accreditation

All Industry Accreditation (IA) cards issued from 1st Jan 2020 will expire on 31st Dec 2024 and cannot be renewed.

This guidance is designed to help you understand your next steps to replace your card.

What you need to do next depends on your occupation and what qualifications you may hold.

If you do not visit site regularly, or you have moved into an office-based role you may no longer require a card.

Those needing to obtain a qualification DO NOT need to attend college. The SVQ/NVQ (S/NVQ) can be achieved via various routes and CITB grants may be available for employers to support with the cost of the qualification.
