In response to demand from major construction companies who require steel fixers to have CSCS cards to operate on site, CSIC offers a range of courses so that workers can prove their competence.
We are the only facility in the UK to offer experienced steel fixers a fast-track NVQ Level 2 in just two days!

The realistic working environment – the Steel Fixing Arena – consists of a series of platforms, where courses are adapted so that training represents a typical workplace.
Candidates can construct steel cages to form pile caps, beams, walls, columns, and suspended slabs up to 12x12m suspended 2m above the ground. The platforms are staggered down the sloping site, surrounded by landscaped banks with a central access track.
The Steel Fixing Arena also has concrete infrastructures to facilitate bespoke training in steel fixing operations – one of the critical skills for the nuclear new build – enabling steel fixing training to be delivered via large-scale, practical team-based tasks.
CSIC’s team are industry professional trainers and assessors, who are passionate about delivering the very best training. This, combined with this state-of-the-art facility, ensures some of the highest completion rates in the country.
