Coronavirus Guidance - Expired ALLMI Cards

Dated: 20th March 2020

Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, many ALLMI training providers are unable to engage in course delivery at present, or are having to limit the number of courses they supply. This is, therefore, likely to result in an increased number of expired ALLMI cards circulating within the industry. Due to these unprecedented and exceptional circumstances, ALLMI’s stance is aligned with that of CSCS on this matter by requesting that those responsible for site access and card checking use their discretion towards workers whose cards have recently expired. This is on the condition they can provide evidence that the required refresher training / assessment cannot be undertaken as a result of training provider closures. This stance is also supported by Build UK.
