The CFA sponsors training by its own Full Members or by approved training providers in the following subjects:
BS 8539:2012 recommends that anchors for safety critical applications are installed only by competent persons. Full Members of the CFA offer on site tool box talks which would satisfy this recommendation for the installation of specific types and makes of anchor.
Training to the syllabus of the CFA Academy, which will be carried out by an Approved Training Provider, will carry certification from the CFA Academy as a Competent Installer of either expansion anchors or resin anchors, or both, depending on client requirements. Certification is awarded to those delegates who pass the necessary assesments during the training.
Other courses run under the auspices of the CFA Academy and provided by Full Members of the CFA include:
Basic Anchor Technology for Approved Distributors' staff and
Competent Tester for staff of Approved Testers - this qualifies successful candidates for General Purpose anchor testing to the recommendations of the CFA Guidance Note: Procedures for site testing construction fixings - 2012 and therefore to the recommendations of BS 8539:2012.
Training for accreditation to other testing categories can be arranged via an approved training provider.
