Build UK Training Standard

FISS cards are recognised by main contractors and are included in the Build UK Training Standard, which provides a consistent means of recognising that an individual has achieved the agreed standard of qualification and skill in the occupation they are working in. If you experience problems with having FISS cards recognised please refer the contractor to the Build UK document and let us know if they continue to question if the card is acceptable.
