The NVQ is a work-based qualification that recognises the skills and knowledge a person needs to do a job.

  • Complete an NVQ without going to college

  • Proof of your professional competence

  • Assessed by expert assessors

On Site Assessment Training is perfect for tradesmen who have no proof of qualification and limited time off the site. We come to you!

After an initial on-site assessment by a registered professional, an assessment plan will be agreed with you and a dedicated assessor will work with you to build up a portfolio of evidence to prove you are competent in your trade.

This route will normally take between three to six months with full level 2 certification on completion which in turn allows you to apply for a TRADE CSCS card. (After completing the CITB H&S test) The qualification lasts for life.

How an NVQ works:-

  • An NVQ is proof of your competence in your chosen trade enabling you to apply for a Trade CSCS card which is mandatory for working on most construction sites.

  • To start, you’ll need to have competence in chosen trade access to a computer and enough dedicated time to finish the course

  • The course involves between 2 and 4 visits to your place of work by an appointed accredited assessor spread over 3 to six months depending on your input and availability
