What is involved in studying this course?
Learners must work toward units in accordance with relevant health and safety legislation. This is particularly important when working at heights, inspecting and testing, and diagnosing faults.
Where cited legislation and regulations are not applicable (for example, where the qualification is being delivered outside of England) then substitutions applicable to the learner’s jurisdiction can be made.
Meeting the assessment requirements of performance outcomes will need initial discussions and assessment planning between the learner and assessor as an essential activity to identify opportunities to assess real working environment evidence, gaps that need to be filled, or opportunities to recognise the prior achievement of the learner.
Still think this course is for you? It is a requirement for you to fill in both the Skills Scan and Candidate Background forms first for our review and recognition of your suitability for this qualification.
