CAI Plus Member ( Confederation of Aerial Industries)
The CAI is the recognised body for the aerial and satellite industry. The CAI is committed to raising standards within the industry and the criteria for membership is extremely high.
The CAI Plus Scheme was launched to create a higher membership category than already existed, in order to allow all engineers to gain recognition as Accredited Digital Installers.
This shows the public that CAI engineers are trained, regulated to a high standard and are professional and that to join, the Confederation has every regard for their abilities.
CAI plus members, in addition to current CAI membership requirements, have to provide the following three forms of evidence:
- Basic Disclosure / Criminal Records check (CRB)
- Certification proving CAI minimum standard liability insurance.
- Certification proving a Safe Working at Height with Ladders course has been completed.
The process of gaining CAI Plus membership involves applying for CRB checks for engineers who will be entering customer’s property. CAI Plus is the way forward into this new and exciting digital age and beyond.
Member of the RDI ( Registered Digital Institute )
The Registered Digital Installer Licencing Body (RDI-LB) was created in 2005 as a collaboration between industry, sector skills, further education bodies and government. The organisation was launched as a community interest company. It’s principle activity to 2008 focussed on forming a database of qualified, security checked, insured and safe digital TV installers. For a sector that had no formal qualification or recognised ‘benchmarking’ this was a first and those engineers meeting the Body’s criteria were given a license to practice their trade under the governments Digital Switchover Certification Mark (better known as the Pink Tick).
In 2011 the RDI-LB responded and proposed replacing the pink tick certification with a new more relevant ‘blue tick’ mark as a replacement in September 2012.
Through various consultations and strong feedback from Government, education, trade bodies, RDI-LB members and the wider community it became clear the RDI-LB had support to develop under a new remit. Continuing the strong consumer interaction and promotion of qualified installers or engineers was considered to be at the heart of activities moving forward. This combined with working far more closely with industry sectors, government, and members to help shape and define standards moving forwards. In 2012 the possibility to continue the successes of the RDI-LB in a broader scope was realised with the formation of the Registered Digital Institute.
