Qualifications

Fit For Trade are on hand to assist you with advice and guidance on the qualification route suitable and specific to your particular trade element within the Fenestration Industry which gains you industry and CSCS compliance.

The following is a brief guide to some of the Fenestration NVQs. These can be delivered at your place of work/site and there is no need to attend College days, so you are free to perform your roles with minimum disruption.

Our clients gain benefits from undertaking NVQs. Whether you are working on domestic properties or commercial building sites, NVQs provide a route to proving competency in your trade area. For example, an installation company performs both domestic and commercial installation work and therefore must be compliant under all recognised Competent Personal Schemes (i.e. FENSA MTC) and the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) requirements. NVQs enables you and the organisation you work with to be compliant in both these areas.

NVQs are also a progression route to personal development and career enhancement and many of our clients begin with a level 2 and progress to Level 3 (Supervisor) Level 4 (Leadership) Level 6 and Level 7 Construction (Site Management) routes.
