Training Providers

Approved Training Providers

Lantra approves a network of Training Providers across the UK to deliver National Highways Sector Schemes.  Every Sector Schemes Training Provider will also have access to Lantra’s extensive training portfolio of over 500+ training courses and qualifications.  As a mark of approval every Lantra Training Provider is issued with a Certificate of Approval to show they have been independently verified and quality assured in accordance with the National Highways Sector Schemes standard.


General scheme information

Having the right knowledge and training is vital when you’re working in the fencing industry.

The Fencing Industry Skills Scheme/Construction Skills Certification Scheme (FISS/CSCS) helps you do just that as it offers a structure for skills development and progression through a card scheme, giving assurance to employers that labourers, installers, supervisors and managers within the fencing environment have achieved a recognised qualification.

The scheme is underpinned by National Highway Sector Schemes 2A,  2C and 10B.

Schedule of Suppliers

On behalf of UKAS and the certification bodies Lantra Awards provide a free page on our website for companies to register to the Schedule of Suppliers.

It is now the responsibility of individual companies to enter their own details and maintain this information on a year to year basis.   

Your Standards and Qualifications

To make sure you have skilled, knowledgeable and qualified workers, we work to produce flexible sets of qualifications using our National Occupational Standards

We know how important these standards and qualifications are so we regularly review them to keep them up-to-date, however, with so many types of qualifications to choose from, choosing the right one for you can seem confusing.
