AMI Skills Card Asbestos Removal Manager

By carrying the CSCS logo these cards provide a means to verify identity and that the manager has the required qualifications, training and experience to carry out their work on a construction site.

All physical smartcards issued by ARCA use smart technology and contain an electronic chip. This can be used to check the identity of the card holder and, for example, when ARCA updates a card holders’ record with ‘successfully completed Licensed Contract Manager Update’ this will automatically update the chip in the card.

Virtual smartcards can also be issued to applicants, at no additional cost, if the applicant provides a personal mobile number and email address on the application form. A virtual smartcard is a smartcard that is stored in an app on the card holders’ smartphone or tablet (this can be used instead of or as well as a physical card). Full details on the smartcard system and app are available here
