FAQ

What qualifications are available?

 

QUA800 - Door & Shutter Systems - Installation.

QUB800 - Door & Shutter Systems - Repair.

QUL800 - Loading Bay Equipment - Installation or Maintenance.

 

Which qualification?

 

If you predominantly install door systems then QUA800 will fit the bill. If you usually repair door systems, then choose QUB800. Both qualifications include the service and maintenance of door systems.

 

For loading bay equipment, there is only one qualification and you only need to cover one of the optional units.

 

You can of course do two or all three qualifications. As the first three mandatory units are identical for each qualification, this will simply mean an extra on site observation and more evidence and questioning.  Unfortunately, as they are separate qualifications, there will be an additional CITB registration fee and assessor costs.

 

What are the rules of combination?

 

The Rule of Combination (RoC) for each of the qualifications specifies the combination of units that need to be achieved for the individual to be awarded the qualification.

QUB800 - Door & Shutter Systems - Repair

What are the costs involved?

 

The costs involved for a single qualification are dependent on the number of endorsements you wish to cover under your qualification, your experience and to some extent the observation location.  On average the cost is around £1200.

 

There is a CITB Registration Fee of £78.00 per qualification.

 

However, if you are registered with the CITB you may be eligible for a grant of £400 per person, and information on this can be found here…

How long does the process take?

 

The average period is around three months from start to finish, but this is very much dependent on the experience and availability of the candidate and the suitability of the work required for the observation.

 

The on-site observations must be live and genuine. Simulation is not permitted.

 

There is also a period required for the candidate to collate other forms of evidence, such as training records, witness statements etc.

 

During the induction process, the assessor will ascertain what experience the candidate has and will advise time scales on an individual basis.

 

The assessor also needs sufficient time to process the evidence gained and map this to the units in the standards.

 

At the end of the process, when the assessor has gained sufficient evidence of competence, a certificate claim will be put forward to the awarding body and subject to satisfactory validation the qualification certificate will be awarded.

 

As soon as the award is made, you can apply for the blue CSCS Skilled Worker Card.
