Non-shell accounts and scp/sftp

We have a CLI that certain users get dropped into when they log in.  One of the things they can go is generate certificates (actually .p12 key/certificate bundles) that they will then scp out of the box from another host.

Problem is that if their default shell isn't sh, ash, dash, bash, zsh, etc. then things break.  Is there a workaround to allow scp/sftp to continue to work even for non-shell accounts?
