OSCAR, (On Site Competency Assessment Report) provides recognition of existing skills of experienced installers.

The scheme is widely accepted as proof of installer competence by leading UKAS Certification Bodies allowing OSCAR approved installers to offer their customers peace of mind.

SIG Building Plastics are very pleased to announce that we can now offer our customers access to OSCAR accreditation in Roofline and NOW in Windows & Doors, and EPDM – providing proof of the completion, continued support plus an opportunity to offer something your competitors may not be able to!

How does it work?

As an installer completing OSCAR you’ll be judged through on-site assessments for measuring and marking out, to fitting and finishing. Approved by leading UKAS Certification Body, Stroma, OSCAR not only helps raise standards, it also gives a simple route to certification. Once you complete the assessment, we’ll provide ongoing monitoring and support to maintain best practice.

What can I get OSCAR accredited in? 

The construction industry is always changing, adapting and evolving which is why OSCAR does too, the only thing that doesn’t change is the recognition you get. We understand that projects differ and your skills have to be transferable which is why you can get OSCAR accredited on: click on the links below for more information

What benefits will I receive from completing this?

For most installers, OSCAR is a formal recognition of your already existing skills. It provides you with proof of qualification and standardises best practice where your company has multiple fitting teams. We are passionate about the industry and want to provide installers with the right tools and opportunities to provide your customer with top quality service and give them peace of mind.

You will be supported by our Marketing team who will provide an initial set of FREE marketing materials including branded brochures, drop cards and a lanyard with ID card to provide details of the assessment and how it benefits homeowners.

I’m a homeowner. Why should I use an installer who has completed their OSCAR?

It’s a no-brainer! Certified installers who have trained through us will be subject to ongoing monitoring of installations meaning they don’t just complete a one-off training session, they’re always putting what they learn into practice.

As the OSCAR is backed by Stroma Software, we’re also able to offer insurance backed warranty via GDGC for the workmanship on your installation, giving you peace of mind that should something go wrong, someone will be straight out to resolve the issue and support you.
