This course will assess and verify a candidate’s knowledge and skill in being able to carry out steel erecting activities in the engineering construction industry. To complete the NVQ it is required that one of our assessors visits you and witnesses you working first hand in your job role. During the qualification, you will receive 4 visits from one of our assessors.
Course Duration: Roll on, Roll off
What the Course Covers
• Contribute to effective working relationships in engineering construction
• Work safely and minimise risk in engineering construction
• Identify and deal with hazards and emergencies in the engineering construction work environment
• Prepare structural steel loads for moving in engineering construction
• Move structural steel loads in engineering construction
• Position and erect steel structures in engineering construction
• Erect structural steel sections in engineering construction
• Check that the steel structure is installed to specification in engineering construction
Optional Units (Candidates choose two units from the following options):
• Dismantle structural steel sections in engineering construction
• Determine resource requirements to achieve steel erecting objectives
• Determine technical requirements in engineering to achieve steel erecting objectives
By the end of the Course
Candidates who gain a minimum of 68 credits, 59 from the mandatory units and 9 credits from 2 of the Optional units, will achieve a Level 3 Qualification in Erecting Engineering Construction Capital. Candidates will be able to take the knowledge, skills and competence they have been taught from the course and demonstrate this in a workplace environment.
NOTES: With the NVQ skilled cards you just need to have completed a touch screen test within the last 12 months to apply for the temp skills card for steel erecting. This card is valid until completion of the NVQ at which point it will then be changed for the full skills card. This lasts a lifetime with the touch screen test needing to be renewed every 5 years.
