JIB-PMES card application forms

It has come to our attention that copies of the earlier versions of our JIB-PMES CSCS Registration card application forms are being manipulated and used by third party organisations who are selling a 'fast track' JIB-PMES CSCS application service. In order to hopefully bring about an end to this practice (which can end up costing applicants far more money than they actually need to pay) and to ensure that all card applications are completed using the most current and correct application forms, we have taken the decision to now only accept card applications that use the most up to date forms (i.e. the ones which show '© JIB-PMES 2013' and which can be downloaded from this website).

We would ask applicants to check that they are using the most current version of the form for their application, as failure to do so will result in applications being returned. If applicants are using a third party organisation for their application, we would again advise that they make sure that the third party organisation is using the current and correct version of the form. Failure to do so will result in application forms being returned.

JIB-PMES and JTL Plumbing L2 NVQ Up-skilling – Updated Scheme for 2013!

The JIB-PMES and JTL are pleased to announce that the L2 NVQ Up-skilling programme is to continue throughout 2013. We are pleased to confirm that the overall price of the scheme has not been increased, and in addition the financing options for the programme have been improved, as JTL can now offer flexible payment terms – meaning that eligible candidates will be able to spread the £1,200.00 cost by paying 6 instalments of £200.00 over the duration of the programme.

As a reminder to those new to the initiative, the programme is aimed at those working in the plumbing and heating sector who have completed technical certificate qualifications (e.g. City and Guilds 6129/City and Guilds 6128), but have not completed the appropriate NVQ – which is required to confirm their status within the industry. If this applies to you, or someone you know, then please download the flyer and application form which explain more about the initiative or contact us directly for more information on 0800 197 1060 or info@jib-pmes.org.uk

Success for NVQ Up-skilling Learner

The JIB-PMES would like to congratulate Tony McEvoy on becoming the first learner to complete and pass the NVQ up-skilling programme.

The scheme, which is run in conjunction with JTL, has enabled Tony to up-skill from a JIB-PMES Green Card holder (with a C&G 6129 technical certificate qualification) to an NVQ Level 2 qualified plumber and JIB-PMES 'Plumber' Blue card holder.

Commenting about his achievement Tony stated: "I recently received my blue JIB plumber's card after completing the NVQ level 2 Up-skill programme. During the past year whilst building up my NVQ portfolio I found the program and the assessor to be very helpful and accommodating. I would fully recommend the NVQ level 2 Up-skill programme to anyone who has done the C&G 6129 and are looking to gain the experience required to become a qualified plumber, for me personally this program was money well spent! I now have an NVQ level 2 which has enabled me to upgrade to a Blue Plumbers card".

For more information on the up-skilling programme and to check to see if you may be eligible please email the JIB-PMES at info@jib-pmes.org.uk

Why register with the JIB-PMES?

The UK-PHMES CSCS Registration Scheme administered by the JIB-PMES

Registration cards are becoming essential for all trades people working in the Plumbing Industry.

The card shows site managers, employers and other tradespeople that you are qualified for the work you are doing, and have passed a Health & Safety Test.

The Health & Safety Test ensures that you have been trained to the required legal standard, and have the knowledge and competence to keep you and your fellow workers safe and healthy. From an employer's perspective it could improve the chances of winning major contracts and reducing site delays.

Your JIB-PMES card is something to be proud of.
