How it Works:
We will book the course in with the course date showing as the date of booking. The training provider will then allocate an assessor who will contact the delegate within 48 hours to arrange the site visits for mutually suitable dates and confirm details.

The trainer will visit the delegate on site 2-3 times over several months to gather evidence of their competence whilst carrying out their day-to-day tasks. They will also provide a witness testimony, take part in a professional 1-1 discussion and have an observation of performance and inspection of work products.

Upon successful completion of the NVQ, delegates will be awarded with a CPCS Blue Competent Operators Card.

The NVQ can take 2-6 months to complete depending on the level NVQ, number of site visits required and the administration process.
