FAQ

What qualifications are available?

 

NOCN Cskills Awards Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Specialist Installation Occupations (Construction) - Door, Gate and Shutter Systems- Installation and Maintenance

NOCN Cskills Awards Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Specialist Installation Occupations (Construction) - Loading Bay Equipment (Installation or Maintenance)

 

Which qualification?

 

The Door, Gate and Shutter Systems NVQ covers all types of Industrial Doors, Domestic Garage Doors, Fire Doors, Pedestrian Doors, Gates, Traffic Barriers and Pedestrian Barriers. The qualification covers installation, repairs and maintenance.

 

The Loading Bay Systems NVQ covers all types of Dock Leveller, Scissor Lift and all associated Loading Bay Equipment such as shelters, seals, wheel guides, traffic lights etc. The qualification covers installation, repairs and maintenance.

 

You can of course do both qualifications simultaneously. As the first three mandatory units for each NVQ are identical, 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 NOCN 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.

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.
