The CAB course , which has been accredited by the GQA , is an introduction to curtain walling . It is intended as a revision for experienced curtain wall installers and for individuals who have little , or no knowledge of the fundamentals of this type of glazed construction .
The introductory course forms part of a mandatory module leading to the award of a newly created CAB Curtain Walling Installers CSCS Card but , it can also be used by CAB members as a valuable training tool to teach the fundamentals of curtain wall systems to staff and new employees . Since 2017 , glass , glazing or fenestration CSCS cards are only available via GQA Qualifications . CAB has partnered with GQA and CSCS to develop a route to obtain the newly created CAB Curtain Walling Installers CSCS Card .

Training Centres will offer guidance to delegates to apply for a trainee card , temporary card or renewal card .
