Fencing organisations are responsible for the installation of different types of fences, gates and barriers, across a broad cross-section of different environments from domestic and agricultural, through to commercial, industrial, high security and infrastructure (e.g. highways, rail and utilities) and so have their own card scheme – Fencing Industry Skills Card (FISS) supported by qualifications and health and safety training at different levels dependent on your role.

The Fencing Industry Skills Scheme (FISS) is supported by the Construction Skills Certification Scheme Ltd (CSCS) as required by the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) under the Industrial Strategy: Construction 2025 as contracted with CSCS.
