NOCN Job Cards are responsible for providing scheme administration services to CISRS, following CITB withdrawing from this role as part of its Vision 2020 programme.
All CISRS operators who apply for a card from 2nd December will receive a new digital ‘Smart’ card. The Smart cards work through NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and by tapping the Smart card on any NFC enabled device – most modern mobile phones and tablets – the cardholder’s name, photo, courses and endorsements will appear.
A CISRS NFC Technology User Guide will be made available in the next few days and will be downloadable from the CISRS website. NOCN Job Cards are currently working on the next stage of Smart cards to allow for additional features to be introduced such as card renewal notifications. This change will not affect most card applicants as the vast majority of CISRS cards are now applied.
The cost of the new CISRS card will be £30 (vat exempt), whilst this a small increase on the current card cost, it will still be lower than the industry average.
