More and more construction sites now are demanding CSCS cards in order to get on sites. The NVQ in one of the above occupations will enable you to apply for a skilled worker CSCS card.


The Level 2 NVQ Diploma/Certificate in Plant Operations is the qualification that is required for the progression from the red CPCS trained operator card, to the blue CPCS competency card. Without this qualification you will lose your CPCS Trained Operator card.

How do I get an NVQ?

The way On Site Training and Assessment Level 2 & Level 3 NVQ works is that evidence of normal working activities from the candidates' workplace is gathered and these, coupled with site visits from an assessor, go towards meeting the standards required for the qualification.


Work Place Learning Funding and funding through Skills Development Scotland's Flexible Training Opportunities Programme is available for Level 2 & Level 3 NVQ qualifications. Contact us for more details you could be eligible for this funding.
