CAI (Confederation of Aerial Industries)

To become a member of the CAI, a company must undergo a rigorous inspection and be subject to continuous assessment. This is the customer's guarantee of service, as they can call upon the CAI in matters of dispute or complaint.

Most importantly the CAI are regularly in touch with the relevant government departments and broadcasters and so have their finger on the pulse of the latest developments. This is why it is always recommended that customers use a CAI member to perform any aerial or satellite work.

CAI Plus Scheme

The CAI Plus Scheme was launched to create a higher membership category than already existed, in order to allow all of our engineers to gain recognition as Accredited Digital Installers. It is now mandatory that if you wish to become a CAI member, that you will also be included in the CAI plus scheme.
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 for the digital switchover.
CAI plus members, in addition to current CAI membership requirements, have to provide the following three forms of evidence:
1. Basic Disclosure/Criminal Records check (CRB)
2. Certification proving CAI minimum standard liability insurance – Employers liability or the public/tradesman’s liability. (£2m for domestic installers and £5m for systems installers).
3. 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. It is a requirement that all vans carrying ‘CAI Plus’ logos will be manned by at least one engineer providing satisfactory evidence of competence. CAI Plus is the way forward into this new and exciting digital age and beyond.

Setting & Maintaining Standards in the Industry

This means to Our Customers that our Engineers undergo constant updating of knowledge and re-training and have also been trained to work safely at heights.

Not only are we CAI & CAI Plus members, but we were the first RDI Company (Registered Digital Installer) in the UK ...

The government has now finished taking television in the UK over to the digital system. Analogue televisions will no longer be able to function without the aid of a digital set-top box or digital recorder. A huge range of new digital TV's and related digital media devices are coming on the market regularly. Though they may be more complicated than in the past, your viewing experience is vastly enhanced, particularly with HD equipment.

Here at ASTEC we are well qualified to take you into the new era of television viewing with all the expert advice that you need.
