Our training has it all: sector-specific, key and complimentary skills, courses for technical and non-technical staff, entry-level to management skills, workshops and qualifications, delivered through a variety of ways, using different learning methods. Quite simply, something for everyone. Certification As a delivery partner for the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS), we issue cards on renewal of ADSA membership and competency training. As the principal card provider for the automatic door industry, we are part of a CSCS working group progressing the introduction of smart card technology which will allow site managers to check the credential of those who attend premises. Influence ADSA is the voice of the automatic door industry and we work with a range of organisations and regulatory bodies to ensure that it is properly represented within the wider building products and construction sector. We strive to develop quality standards and exert our influence to support the best interests of our members. Information We endeavour to keep you informed with news and views including best practice and industry trends. Our membership communications include regular technical standards bulletins, Opening Doors magazine, email newsletters, website updates and social media posts. We also offer discounted prices on BSI/EN publications. Best Practice and Standards ADSA experts work with BSI, which is a member of CEN, the European standardisation organisation - made-up of standard- setting bodies from 34 countries. Our primary objective is to improve the quality of safety and installation standards for the powered pedestrian door industry. Creating and influencing standards is an acknowledgement of the expertise that exists within our organisation and provides the opportunity for member feedback to influence specification creation.
